Any student, employee, or applicant for programs or employment at Yale who is concerned about affirmative action, equal opportunity, sexual harassment, racial harassment, or fairness in admissions or employment at Yale, either in a general sense or with respect to his or her own situation, is encouraged to contact the Office of Institutional Equity and Access. Talking about a problem with a member of the Office is not a part of any formal grievance procedure. However, the Director can investigate a situation and help to resolve it informally. The Office also informs individuals about the availability of the University’s grievance procedures for students and employees. In cases in which the individual is not within a group of persons to which a formal grievance procedure applies, the Office will review a complaint. All inquiries are treated in a confidential manner.
Suggestions, comments, and inquiries concerning the University’s compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 which forbids discrimination on the basis of a student’s or an employee’s disability in University programs and activities, should be directed to Valarie Stanley, Director of the Office of Institutional Equity and Access, who coordinates the University’s compliance with Section 504.
Questions and concerns about the University’s compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act should be directed to the Director of the Office of Institutional Equity and Access, Valarie Stanley. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended, protects qualified applicants and employees with disabilities from discrimination in hiring, promotion, discharge, pay, job training, fringe benefits, classification, referral, and other aspects of employment on the basis of disability. The law also requires that covered entities provide qualified applicants and employees with disabilities with reasonable accommodations that do not impose undue hardship.
Any student, faculty or staff member, or applicant who is concerned about age discrimination is encouraged to seek the assistance of the Age Discrimination Act Coordinator, Valarie Stanley, Director of the Office of Institutional Equity and Access.
