The University of Arizona has equitable procedures in place to promptly, thoroughly and fairly address concerns and complaints of harassment or discrimination while being mindful of the rights and unique needs of all parties and of due process.

Both parties have an opportunity to meet with an investigator to present their perspectives, and provide witnesses or information, to bring an advisor to the meeting and to ask questions and seek clarification.  Parties rights and the procedures related to investigation and decision-making are found in the Interim Procedures for Formal Complaints of Title IX Sexual Harassment.  To review the Arizona’s Nondiscrimination and Anti-harassment policy and the Procedures please visit: https://equity.arizona.edu/policies-procedures

The Interim Procedures provide information on supportive measures, interim actions, as well as the range of discipline and available remedies. For additional information please visit equity.arizona.edu.
