Discrimination and Harassment

NC State strives to provide a welcoming and equitable environment for all. These resources are available for information regarding questions of discrimination and harassment.

Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity

If you think that you have been discriminated against, harassed, or retaliated against you should contact Equal Opportunity and Equity (EOE) immediately. EOE works to ensure that the university and its agents engage in practices that are compliant with equal opportunity laws and policies. EOE is a neutral entity that does not favor either side (management or employee, student or faculty), but instead works to find facts and rectify any known policy violations.

NC State University Police

If you feel threatened and/or are in physical danger, report the incident to Campus Police immediately at 919.515.3000.

Disability Resources Office

The Disability Services Office collaborates with the institution’s diverse community to ensure that all aspects of campus life — learning, working, and living — are universally accessible to every student at NC State.

Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender (GLBT) Center

If you have questions or concerns related to sexual orientation- or gender identity-related inclusion on campus, contact the NC State GLBT Center. The GLBT Center provides consultation to individual students as well as faculty and staff from across campus on best practices for creating safe and inclusive working, living and learning environments for members of the GLBT community. The GLBT Center also assists transgender students as they work with faculty, staff and administrators on issues such as updating their records to reflect a preferred name, indicating the gender pronouns they use, exploring their on-campus housing options, beginning or continuing hormone therapy, etc.

Title IX

Title IX is a civil rights law prohibiting discrimination in education programs and activities receiving federal funds. It was the first comprehensive federal law to prohibit sex discrimination against students and employees in these institutions.

Women’s Center

If you are interested in gender equity and social justice and/or have any gender-equity and social justice-related concerns and want to talk about those in a “safe space”.  If you or a loved one is/has been involved in a relationship or sexual violence including stalking, Women’s Center staff advocates provide confidential support to survivors. This includes crisis counseling, financial assistance, academic/housing advocacy, referrals and accompaniment to court, student conduct hearings, and law enforcement agencies.  The Center also offers peer education opportunities, academic courses related to interpersonal violence, and campus-wide educational programs aimed at preventing interpersonal violence and supporting survivors.

Workplace Harassment

If you have a complaint based on general workplace conditions not related to equal opportunity related concerns, report them through NC State Human Resources.

Student Conduct

The goal of Student Conduct is to educate students about the policies, rules, and regulations that will impact their time here at NC State.  In addition, we help students gain greater insight into their decisions and behaviors so every student can learn in a safe, respectful environment.

Behavioral Assessment Team

NC State University’s Behavior Assessment Team (BAT) is committed to promoting the NC State community’s safety via a proactive, multidisciplinary, coordinated and objective approach to the prevention, identification, assessment, intervention, and management of situations that pose, or may pose a threat to the safety and well-being of our campus community (i.e. students, faculty, staff, and visitors).
