IF YOU ARE IN IMMEDIATE CRISIS, CALL 911.
Non-Discrimination, Equal Opportunity, Inclusion & Title IX Statement
The University of North Florida (UNF) is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all who interact in our community. In building this environment, we strive to attract students, faculty and staff from a variety of cultures, backgrounds and life experiences. While embracing these concepts, including our obligations under federal, state and local law, UNF is equally committed to ensuring that educational and employment decisions, including but not limited to recruitment, admission, hiring, compensation and promotion, are based on the qualifications, skills and abilities of those desiring to work, study, and participate in our community.
To accomplish this intent, UNF shall not commit or permit discrimination or harassment on the basis of genetic information, race, color, religion, age, sex, disability, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin or veteran status in any educational, employment, social or recreational program or activity it offers. Similarly, UNF will not commit or permit retaliation against an individual who complains of discrimination or harassment or an individual who cooperates in an investigation of an alleged violation of University Regulation. In exercising these standards, the University will not abridge either free speech or academic freedom based on its context.
The UNF President has delegated to the Office of Equal Opportunity and Inclusion (EOI) the authority and responsibility to receive, investigate, and, where appropriate, attempt to conciliate complaints, or investigate situations or conduct alleged to be in violation of the University’s Non-Discrimination, Equal Opportunity and Inclusion Regulation and Sexual Misconduct Regulation. Accordingly, any member of the UNF community who believes that they have been subjected to discrimination, discriminatory harassment, retaliation, or sexual misconduct may seek guidance, counseling and/or file a complaint by contacting:
Marlynn R. Jones, Esquire

UNF complies with the requirements of Title IX
of the Education Amendments of 1972, 20 U.S.C. Sec. 1681, et seq., and
subsequent regulations, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in
all programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance. UNF receives
such assistance and complies with this law and its implementation of regulation
at 34 C.F.R. Part 106 (http://www2.ed.gov/policy/rights/reg/ocr/edlite-34cfr106.html).
To ensure compliance with Title IX, the
President of the University has designated the Title IX Coordinator as the
primary contact responsible for developing, adopting and/or assuring the
dissemination of the University's nondiscrimination policy and for making the
policy available to the University community. In addition, the Senior Associate
Director of Athletics/Senior Women's Administrator will make the policy
available to student-athletes as required to be in compliance with NCAA
regulations. The Office of Human Resources distributes the policy to faculty,
staff, the University community and the public.
