Policy Prohibiting Discrimination and Harassment

Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, prohibits discrimination and harassment based upon race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, genetic information, atypical hereditary cellular or blood trait, marital status, civil union status, domestic partnership status, military service, veteran status, and any other category protected by law. Discrimination and harassment compromise the integrity of the university and unfairly interfere with the opportunity for all persons to fully participate in the academic, work, and living environment of the university.

While promoting an environment free from discrimination is everyone's responsibility, the following staff members have been designated to respond to:

Complaints against a Student

Anne Newman, Director, Office of Student Conduct (732-932-9414 or amnewma@rci.rutgers.edu)

Complaints against an Employee

Lisa Grosskreutz, Associate Director, Office of Employment Equity, University Human Resources (848-932-3980 or lisa.grosskreutz@rutgers.edu)


Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education. It reads:

"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."

Sex discrimination includes sexual harassment and sexual assault. While it is often thought of as a law that applies to athletics programs, Title IX is much broader than athletics and applies to many programs at Rutgers. While compliance with the law is everyone's responsibility at the university, listed below are the staff members who have primary responsibility for Title IX compliance:

Complaints against a Student

Jackie Moran, Title IX Coordinator, Office of Student Affairs (848-932-8576 or moran@oldqueens.rutgers.edu)

Anne Newman, Deputy Title IX Coordinator, Office of Student Conduct (732-932-9414, ext. 104, or amnewma@rci.rutgers.edu)

Complaints against a student may be filed online at https://publicdocs.maxient.com/incidentreport.php?RutgersUniv.

Complaints against an Employee

Kathryn Bannai, Title IX Coordinator, Office of Employment Equity (848-932-3979 or kathryn.bannai@rutgers.edu)

Lisa Grosskreutz, Associate Director, Office of Employment Equity, University Human Resources (848-932-3980 or lisa.grosskreutz@rutgers.edu)
