NC State University provides equality of opportunity in education and

employment for all students and employees. Accordingly, NC State affirms

its commitment to maintain a work environment for all employees and an

academic environment for all students that is free from all forms of

discrimination. Discrimination based on race, color, religion, creed, sex,

national origin, age, disability, veteran status, or sexual orientation is a

violation of state and federal law and/or NC State University policy and will

not be tolerated. Harassment of any person (either in the form of quid pro

quo or creation of a hostile environment) based on race, color, religion,

creed, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, or sexual

orientation also is a violation of state and federal law and/or NC State

University policy and will not be tolerated. Retaliation against any person

who complains about discrimination is also prohibited. NC State’s policies

and regulations covering discrimination, harassment, and retaliation may be
