The University of Wisconsin-Stout is committed to providing an academic and workplace environment for employees which recognizes the dignity and worth of all members of the university community. The University will not tolerate discrimination or harassment by or toward employees and visitors on the basis of sex, race, religion, color, creed, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, pregnancy, political affiliation, arrest or conviction record, veterans status, or any other prohibited basis defined by federal or state law or University of Wisconsin System policy.

Discrimination and harassment are inconsistent with the University's efforts to foster an environment of respect for all members of the university community. Incidents of discriminatory conduct are detrimental to the individuals directly involved and diminish the university community as a whole. It is, therefore, the policy of the University that such behavior will not be tolerated and will be dealt with according to the procedures outlined. Retaliation for filing a complaint of discrimination or harassment is also a form of harassment and is therefore prohibited.

Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. The University has designated the Director of Human Resources as the Title IX Coordinator  to handle all inquiries regarding its efforts to comply with and carry out its responsibilities under Title IX.

Please see the Non-Discrimination Policy for detailed information.
