Policy Statement - Equal Opportunity


Consistent with federal and state laws and regulations, policies of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, and policies of the University of Georgia (“UGA”) (collectively, “applicable laws and policies”), UGA restates its commitment to the concepts of equal opportunity, affirmative action, and non-discrimination.

UGA is committed to maintaining a fair and respectful environment for living, work and study.  To that end, and in accordance with applicable laws and policies, UGA prohibits any member of the faculty, staff, administration, student body, or visitors to campus, whether they be guests, patrons, independent contractors, or clients, from harassing and/or discriminating against any other member of the UGA community because of that person’s race, color, sex (including sexual harassment and pregnancy), sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity or national origin, religion, age, genetic information, disability, or veteran status. Incidents of harassment and discrimination will be met with appropriate disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal or debarment from UGA.

Questions regarding this policy statement should be directed to the UGA Equal Opportunity Office at (706) 542-7912 or ugaeoo@uga.edu .
