Bias and Discrimination Resources
Title IX Office
The University Title IX office is responsible for facilitating the University’s compliance with Title IX, including sexual discrimination and/or harassment.
The Know Your Rights & Resources guide is intended for any member of the University community who has experienced sexual assault, stalking, relationship or intimate partner violence, sexual harassment, or other sexual misconduct. The guide provides important information on resources and reporting options so that individuals can decide what feels right for their situation. Colleagues and friends of those who have experienced harm may also find the guide useful.
UCIRO (University Complaint Investigation and Resolution Office)
UCIRO investigates complaints that a University employee has violated the University’s non-discrimination and/ or non-retaliation policies. A UCIRO investigation may be requested either by an individual or by the administrative head of a University organization.
The UW Bias Advisory Committee reviews reports of bias incidents. If you encounter or suspect incidents of bias, you are encouraged to file a report, which will be reviewed by the UW’s Bias Incident Advisory Committee. Whenever possible, bias reports will be reviewed within two to four business days.
Discrimination and Harassment Educational Videos
Addressing Discrimination and Harassment at the University of Washington, a new series of education and awareness videos, explores protected class discrimination and identifies strategies for putting a stop to it. The series was created by Compliance Services, and is intended for all students and employees, wherever they study or work.
