William & Mary

Equal Opportunity Overview

The Office of Diversity & Equal Opportunity provides key services to faculty and staff to help ensure they have equal opportunity in the workplace.  The following equal opportunity programs and services complement the Office's diversity programs:

  • Developing and monitoring W&M's affirmative action programs
  • Provide accommodations for employees and applicants with disabilities as well as religious accommodations
  • Assist search committees in the recruitment and hiring process
The Office does not handle complaints or grievances of discrimination or harassment.  The Office of Diversity & Equal Opportunity works closely with the Office of Compliance & Policy, which coordinates W&M's discrimination, harassment, and sexual violence prevention and response.  Online organization charts provide more information about which university offices are involved in W&M's discrimination and harassment prevention and response work.
