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 age, race, color, religion, creed, ancestry, physical or mental disability, national origin, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, marital status, genetic information, AIDS/HIV status, sickle cell trait, 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 and Title IX Sexual Harassment 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 EOI and Title IX Coordinator, located at Building 1, J.J. Daniel Hall, Suite 1201, 1 UNF Drive, Jacksonville, Florida 32224-7699, or call (904) 620-2507 or via 711 Florida Relay for persons who are deaf or hard of hearing or those with speech impairments and/or limitations.
