Binghamton University is committed to the idea of respect for human diversity and for creating a campus community that is inclusive of all its members—a community in which prejudice, harassment and discrimination on the basis of gender, ethnicity, race, national origin, age, religion, marital status, disability, veteran era status and sexual orientation are unacceptable. The Affirmative Action Office is responsible for the development of programs, training, outreach and compliance efforts to ensure the University's commitment to a harassment-and discrimination-free environment.
The Affirmative Action Office provides support and advice to all University offices on recruitment and retention issues, sexual harassment prevention training, diversity, workplace issues and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Director of Affirmative Action also serves as co-compliance officer, in concert with the Director of Services for Students with Disabilities, for Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and ADA.
