Equity and Civil Rights Compliance

The Office of University Equity
and Civil Rights Compliance (ECRC)

ECRC ensures that the University maintains an employment and educational environment that is free from discrimination and harassment. ECRC monitors the educational environment and workplace to stop, remediate, and prevent discrimination on the basis of protected status. We make policy recommendations, offer training, and provide avenues for the resolution of grievances which are based on protected status. This includes discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, age, ethnicity, national origin, national ancestry, sex, pregnancy, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, military service or veteran status, mental or physical disability, or genetic information.

ECRC supports the University's efforts to foster a diverse student body and workforce; therefore ECRC often collaborates with campus partners who have responsibilities for those efforts, such as the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and University Human Resources.

The ECRC office houses the university Title IX Coordinator, who can be reached by email at titleix@ohio.edu or by phone at 740-593-9140.
