Office of Institutional Equity

About the Office of Institutional Equity

Kansas State University is committed to fostering an intellectually diverse student, faculty and staff environment that is rooted in respect and fair practices. The Office of Institutional Equity is engaged in training, outreach, affirmative action planning, equal employment opportunity compliance and conducting investigations in accordance with PPM 3010, laws, regulations, executive orders and other applicable policies that uphold equal opportunity and civil rights laws.

The Office of Institutional Equity accomplishes this through collaboration with students, faculty and staff in hiring practices, training and reporting. Our goal is to serve as a resource for the university and to coordinate fair, equitable treatment and practices to all regardless of race, color, ethnicity, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, age, ancestry, disability, genetic information, military status or veteran status.
