The University of Texas at Austin (University) is committed to providing an educational and working environment for students, faculty, and staff that is free from discrimination based on race, color, sex, pregnancy, gender identity, sexual orientation, gender expression, religion, age, national origin, veteran status, disability, genetic information, military service, or any other legally protected basis. This Policy prohibits such conduct.
This Policy also prohibits retaliation against someone because the individual reported under this Policy, opposed an unlawful practice, participated in an investigation or requested supportive measures. Finally, this Policy prohibits failing to cooperate in good faith, filing false complaints or providing materially false information, interfering with this Policy’s processes, abusing the investigation process, or failing to report incidents reasonably believed to constitute discrimination, harassment, or retaliation.
This Policy does not cover prohibited conduct of a sexual nature. Procedures for reporting sexual assault, interpersonal violence, stalking, and sexual harassment, are addressed by Handbook of Operating Procedures (HOP) 3-3031. While these are forms of sex discrimination, their sexual nature removes them from the purview of this Policy.
The University of Texas School of Law may deny participation in recruitment and other student programs to employers whose behavior contravenes this Policy.
All visitors including recruiting employers who use our services, are required to affirm the following statement to confirm compliance with University Policies:
I have read and understand the Nondiscrimination Policy (Handbook of Operating Procedures 3-3020) of The University of Texas at Austin. It is my intent to consider all applicants on the basis of merit and not to discriminate against any individual on the basis of race, color, sex, pregnancy, gender identity, sexual orientation, gender expression, religion, age, national origin, veteran status, disability, genetic information, military service, or any other legally protected basis in compliance with the University’s Handbook of Operating Procedures 3-3031.
I further agree to adhere to the Principles for a Fair and Ethical Recruitment Process set forth by NALP, the Association for Legal Career Professionals.
I understand that the Career Services Office can discontinue my access to employer services at any time if I am found in violation of these standards, policies, and principles.
Inquiries regarding this Policy may be directed to the University’s Department of Investigation and Adjudication (DIA) at 512-471-3701 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
