Equal Opportunity and Non-Discrimination Policy

It is the policy of the State of North Carolina to provide equality of opportunity in education and employment for all students and employees. Educational and employment decisions should be based on factors that are germane to academic abilities or job performance. North Carolina State University (“NC State”) strives to build and maintain an environment that supports and rewards individuals on the basis of relevant factors such as ability, merit and performance. Accordingly, NC State engages in equal opportunity and affirmative action efforts and prohibits discrimination, harassment and retaliation, as defined by NC State's Equal Opportunity and Non-Discrimination Policy (POL 04.25.05).*

NC State will promptly, thoroughly and impartially respond to all complaints of Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation.

Any individual with a complaint of Discrimination, Harassment or Retaliation should follow NC State's Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation Complaint Procedure (REG 04.25.02).

Substantiated instances of Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation, as defined in the policy, are violations of the policy and will not be tolerated by NC State.
