The Equity and Campus Diversity Office is the official designee of the college president to ensure that the campus abides by all federal and state laws and SUNY policies with regard to discrimination on the basis of race, sex, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, age, disability or marital or veteran status.
The mission of the Equity and Campus Diversity Office is to ensure that the college community understands and complies with both federal and state laws with the respect to equal employment opportunity and affirmative action. While equal employment opportunity is the law, affirmative action and diversity issues require the college not only to provide access to employment and educational programs, but also to provide equitable opportunities to enhance success
The primary goal of the Equity and Campus Diversity Office is to create a campus climate that is favorable to the development of the human potential of all faculty, staff, administrators, and students. To achieve this goal, the office has three major responsibilities: compliance, equity of services, and diversity.
