- About UW
The University of Wyoming (UW) is a recipient of federal assistance and must be in compliance with Title VI. Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin. No person at UW shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.
Prohibited discrimination is treating someone differently because of their race, color, national origin, disability, religion, age, sexual orientation, and status as a parent in any program or activity at UW. The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion examines whether there was an adverse impact on the individual’s work or education environment and whether individuals outside of the protected class received more favorable treatment. If there was an adverse impact on the individual’s work or education environment, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion considers whether there is a legitimate, nondiscriminatory reason for the action.
General bullying or uncivil behavior that is not based on a protected class does not fall within the purview of the Title VI. However, such behavior may violate the University’s expectations on civility and mutual respect as outlined in the staff and student handbooks as well as University policies.
Reporting Obligations Discrimination with the exception of confidential resources, all University employees (including student employees) with teaching or supervisory authority and graduate students with teaching or supervisory authority are obligated to promptly report to the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion any incidents of discrimination of which they become aware in the scope of their work for the University. The University encourages all individuals—including students not referenced above and staff without supervisory authority—to report discrimination.
The University of Wyoming form and instructions for filing a complaint is located at https://www.uwyo.edu/reportit and the Report It form is attached as an Appendix. The University also accepts a variety of reporting options, including receiving reports of discrimination and harassment verbally, via email, and the form, mentioned above, located in the reporting platform on the Equal Opportunity Report and Response website.
