Equal Access/Equal Opportunity Workshop

Every CE grad student is required to complete an Equal Access/Equal Opportunity Workshop every three years.  These are normally offered during Orientation week, however if a student is not able to attend during Orientation, they can attend any EA/EO Workshop during the semester.

The EA/EO workshop is designed to provide participants with a foundation in the areas of equal access and equal opportunity. Information on discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment, disabilities, retaliation, and the process at the university for the resolution of complaints will be presented. The University's Nondiscrimination Policy Statement, Anti-harassment Policy, and Procedures for Resolving Complaints of Discrimination and Harassment will be provided to every participant. Participants are asked to assess the role personal behavior and conduct play in ensuring an inclusive university community that is free of discrimination and harassment.
