Policy of Non-Discrimination and Affirmative Action
The Institute prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity per its Policy of Non-Discrimination and Affirmative Action. The USG's decision to not include sexual orientation or gender identity in its policies does not render the Institute's policy invalid; it means only that USG institutions are not required to have such a policy.
Any individual who believe that they have been subjected to discriminatory and/or harassing behavior can make a complaint using the Institute's official complaints process. Information about how to file a complaint can be found in the Equal Opportunity Complaint Policy.
