Regents Policy 4402: Policy on Nondiscrimination on Basis of Sexual Orientation

Approved June 17, 1983

It is the intent and direction of the Board of Regents that the University's policy against legally impermissible, arbitrary, or unreasonable discriminatory practices shall be understood and applied so as to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. As specified in that policy, all groups operating under The Regents, including administration, faculty, student governments, University-owned residence halls, and programs sponsored by the University, are governed by this policy of nondiscrimination.

The policy and its specific application to sexual orientation discrimination shall be appropriately publicized and disseminated within the University.

The President shall review University nondiscrimination policy statements and revise such statements as appropriate to include sexual orientation among listings of prohibited forms of discrimination. The President is requested to report to the Board of Regents at its February 1984 meeting actions taken regarding this matter.
