Not only does the PDA value an environment that promotes inclusivity to people of all genders, but our community is LEGALLY protected against sexual discrimination at the federal level by Title IX.
We have provided a list of helpful resources below, but if you or someone you know is experiencing discrimination based on gender or sex then please contact the Office of Equity.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) ensures that individuals with disabilities are not discriminated against or denied equal access to the same programs, services, and facilities available to others. The University of Colorado is therefore required to provide reasonable accommodations to qualified individuals with disabilities.
If you need to make an application for accommodations, need information regarding the ADA, or would like to report disability discrimination then please contact the Office of Equity or Human Resources.
We recently made a statement in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and are working to develop an action plan to promote diversity in our culture. If you have comments, concerns, suggestions, or would like to join the Committee for Inclusivity & Diversity then please contact the PDA.
The PDA celebrates diversity and aims to help scholars of all ethnicities feel welcome and comfortable in our community. More importantly, discrimination against any individual based on their identity is unacceptable and unlawful.
