The Policy and Procedures apply to all University programs and activities, including, but not limited to, admissions, athletics, instruction, grading, University housing, and University employment. In addition, the law prohibits retaliation against an individual for opposing any practices prohibited by this Policy, for bringing or responding to a complaint of discrimination or harassment, for assisting someone with such a complaint, for attempting to stop such discrimination or harassment, or for participating in resolution of a complaint of discrimination or harassment.
