Radford University Non-Discrimination Policies Radford University does not discriminate with regard to race, color, sex, sexual orientation, disability, age, veteran status, national origin, religion, or political affiliation in the administration of its educational programs, activities, admission or employment practices. Inquiries about this policy may be directed to Human Resources at 704 Clement Street. Telephone: voice (540) 831-5421; hearing impaired (540) 831-5128.

The university has adopted policies to provide for prompt and equitable resolution of discrimination complaints. The Discrimination Complaint Procedure describes the grievance procedure for individuals who have experienced discrimination. The Sexual Harassment Policy further defines sex discrimination by including examples of sexual harassment and a statement concerning consensual relationships between university employees and students. The Accommodation Procedure for Individuals with Disabilities confirms the university's commitment to providing accessibility to its programs, services and activities for individuals with disabilities who are otherwise qualified and entitled to a reasonable accommodation.

Individuals who believe they may have experienced discrimination, but are uncertain as to whether a complaint is justified or whether they wish to initiate a formal complaint may discuss their concerns confidentially and informally with the Executive Director of Human Resources. Students may also consult a staff member at the Center for Counseling and Student Development or the Office of the Dean of Students.

Only acts of discrimination committed by university employees in connection with their university employment may be reviewed through these policies and procedures. The term "employee" refers to any faculty, staff or graduate student employee. All other cases of alleged discrimination, in which the violation is committed by a student, are adjudicated by the university's student judicial system.

Copies of the complete policy statements including procedures for resolving complaints are available in the Office of the Dean of Students, Center for Counseling and Student Development, and the Department of Human Resources.
