CAU is committed to maintaining a humane atmosphere in which the race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, national origin, marital status, physical or mental status, HIV/AIDS status, military or status as a Vietnam veteran of an individual or group are respected and not disparaged. To that end, please find attached CAU’s published policies prohibiting sexual harassment —a form of gender discrimination—and all other forms of unlawful discrimination. The policies are published in the Faculty Handbook, Staff Handbook, Student Handbook, and CAU’s Code of Conduct. Please note that CAU’s policy establishes specific timeframes for initiating and responding to complaints of unlawful discrimination. While CAU believes that adherence to these timeframes affords CAU and the affected parties the best opportunity to promptly, effectively, and fairly resolve the complaint, CAU’s practice has been and will continue to be to investigate any and every complaint of unlawful discrimination that it receives within a reasonable timeframe.
CAU is committed to exercising its best efforts to respond promptly and effectively to complaints of unlawful discrimination and will ensure that once it has notice of unlawful discrimination, it will take immediate and appropriate steps to investigate the complaint and take prompt and effective steps reasonably calculated to end any harassment/discrimination, eliminate a hostile environment if one has been created, and prevent harassment/discrimination from occurring again. The following person has been designated to handle inquiries regarding the non-discrimination policies:
Director of Human Resources
Room 218, Harkness Hall
