University Policies

Non-Discrimination Policy

The University of Minnesota maintains the following non-discrimination policy:

Equal Opportunity

The University of Minnesota shall provide equal access to and opportunity in its programs, facilities, and employment without regard to race, color, creed, religion, national origin, gender, age, marital status, disability, public assistance status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

Inquiries regarding compliance may be directed to the Director, Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action, University of Minnesota, 274 McNamara Alumni Center, 200 Oak Street S.E., Minneapolis, MN 55455, (612) 624-9547, eoaa@umn.edu. Website at www.eoaa.umn.edu.

Access to Student Educational Records

In accordance with the regents’ policy on access to student records, information about a student generally may not be released to a third party without the student’s permission. Some student information — name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, dates of enrollment and enrollment status, college and class, major, adviser, academic awards and honors received, and degrees earned — is considered public or directory information and therefore may be released without authorization from the student. Students may prevent the release of directory information during the period of their enrollment by notifying the records office on their campus. Students have the right to review their educational records.

The regents’ policy is available for review on the University's Web site at www1.umn.edu/regents/. Information in the catalog is subject to change without notice.

In adhering to this policy, the University abides by the Minnesota Human Rights Act, Minnesota Statute Ch. 363; by the Federal Civil Rights Act, 42 U.S.C. 2000e; by the requirements of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972; by Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973; by the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990; by Executive Order 11246, as amended; by 38 U.S.C. 2012, the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1972, as amended; and by other applicable statutes and regulations relating to equality of opportunity. Inquiries regarding compliance may be directed to: www.eoaffact.umn.edu/

Military Recruitment Policy

The University has determined that the Law School must allow the military full access to assistance from the Career Services Office so long as the military represents that it does not unlawfully discriminate. Nevertheless, the Law School wants to make clear that the military’s hiring practices do not conform to the Law School’s and the American Association of Law Schools’ nondiscrimination in employment policies. Allowing the military on campus is not an endorsement of the military’s policies with respect to Gays and Lesbians.
