Anti-Discrimination and Harassment Policies


§ 16.1  Law School Policy on Equality of Opportunity

As a member of the Association of American Law Schools and in conformity with its bylaws, the faculty of Chicago-Kent adopted the following policy: Chicago-Kent College of Law of the Illinois Institute of Technology provides equality of opportunity in legal education for all persons, including faculty and employees, with respect to hiring, continuation, promotion and tenure, applicants for admission, enrolled students, and alumni, without discrimination on the ground of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

Any students, applicant or employee of Illinois Institute of Technology who believes that he or she has received inequitable treatment because of discrimination violating this policy should communicate, either in writing or in person, with the Director of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action, 224 Perlstein Hall, 312.567.3134.

§ 16.2  IIT Policy on Equality of Opportunity

It is the intention of Illinois Institute of Technology to act in accordance with all regulations of the federal, state, and local governments in respect to providing equality of opportunity in employment and in education, insofar as those regulations may pertain to IIT. IIT prohibits and will act to eliminate discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability or veteran status.

Any students, applicant or employee of Illinois Institute of Technology who believes that he or she has received inequitable treatment because of discrimination violating IIT's stated policy of equal opportunity in employment and in education should communicate, either in writing or in person, with the Director of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action, 224 Perlstein Hall, 312.567.3134.

§ 16.3  IIT Policy on Sexual Harassment and Misconduct

Illinois Institute of Technology is committed to ensuring an environment for all members of the university community that is fair, humane, and respectful--an environment which supports and rewards student, faculty and staff performance on the basis of relevant considerations such as ability and effort. Behaviors that inappropriately assert sexuality as relevant to student, faculty or staff performance damage this environment.

Therefore, IIT will provide for its students, faculty and staff an educational and employment environment free of unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct or communications constituting sexual harassment as defined and otherwise prohibited by local, state and federal law.
