The University of Nevada, Reno's Statement of Policy and Intent represents our commitment to equal employment and educational opportunity. In conformance with federal and state law and university policy we are guided by the principle that there shall be no difference in the treatment of individuals because of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, veteran status, or sexual orientation. Equal opportunity and access to programs shall be available to all members of the university community, both students and employed personnel at every level, and to all units, facilities, and services of the university.
The Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) is committed to providing a place of work and learning free of discrimination on the basis of a person's age, disability, whether actual or perceived by others (including service-connected disabilities), gender (including pregnancy related condition), military status or military obligations, sexual orientation, national origin, race, or religion. Where discrimination is found to have occurred, the NSHE will act to stop the discrimination, to prevent its recurrence, and to discipline those responsible. No employee or student, either in the workplace or in the academic environment, should be subjected to discrimination.
