Civil Rights

LSU reaffirms and emphasizes its commitment to provide a workplace free from discrimination and harassment and to provide a means to address complaints of discrimination and/or harassment.

Commitment to the LSU Community

The university also reiterates its commitment and responsibility to protect its employees and students from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation for participating in the complaint process.

Consistent with LSU’s Equal Opportunity policy, our office works to ensure admission to, participation in, or employment or participation in the programs and activities which the university operates, regardless of regardless of race, creed, color, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion, sex, national origin, age, mental or physical disability, or veteran’s status.

Together with other campus units – such as Human Resource Management and the Division of Student Affairs – we use LSU’s policies, procedures, prevention, education, and enforcement to limit and eliminate the barriers created by civil rights-based harassment and discrimination.
