Nondiscrimination Statement

The statement printed below is the University of Virginia's official nondiscrimination statement. The Office of Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action requests that it be printed in University catalogs, all recruiting materials (student and personnel), program brochures, and other "official" publications from the University, such as annual reports. It can be set in a smaller typeface and is usually positioned on an inside front or back cover or in the first few pages of a publication.

At the request of the Office of Civil Rights, the University in 1988 expanded the official nondiscrimination statement: catalogs and major publications must now carry the name and address of the Section 504 Coordinator and the Title IX Coordinator (as written in paragraph two). In 1991, in resolving a complaint filed with the Office of Civil Rights, the telephone numbers of the University's Section 504 Coordinator and its EO/AA Officer were added. In 1992, information on the American Disabilities Act was added.
