Policy Prohibiting Discrimination and Harassment

Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy, gender identity or expression, disability, age, genetic information, atypical hereditary cellular or blood trait, marital status, civil union status, domestic partnership status, military service, veteran status or any other category covered by law in its admission, programs, activities, or employment matters. 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

Michelle Jefferson, Associate Dean of Students and Director, Office of Student Conduct (848-932-9414 or

Complaints Against an Employee

Lisa Grosskreutz, Director, Office of Employment Equity, University Human Resources (848-932-3980 or

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 all programs at Rutgers. While compliance with the law is everyone's responsibility, listed below are the Title IX coordinators who have primary responsibility for Title IX compliance:
