Equal Opportunity & Outreach

UMass Lowell is committed to fostering a welcoming, respectful and safe working and learning community. To assist the university in meeting this goal, Equal Opportunity and Outreach:

  • Designs and implements diversity, inclusion, workforce planning, and management initiatives, based on best practices
  • Provides guidance to address and resolve matters related to civil rights including, among others, employment discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual assault 
  • Offers alternate resolution services, when appropriate 
  • Provides guidance and support to attract and retain diverse students, faculty and staff 
  • Reviews concerns in accordance with the university’s equal opportunity Guidelines 

EOO welcomes the opportunity to hear from you to discuss these services.
