Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action

The Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action (EOAA) at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities supports all employees and students to file reports and complaints of discrimination behavior, as well as receive consultation and get assistance with problem-solving concerns related to discrimination. EOAA will also work to avoid and resolve conflicts of interest from nepotism and personal relationships.

Information on all of these topics is found on the EOAA website at: https://eoaa.umn.edu/
