Institutional Discrimination Complaint Procedures

The Massachusetts State Universities have established specific internal Discrimination Complaint Procedures to help resolve claims and complaints of discrimination, including disability discrimination, on the campus. These procedures will serve as a system of review and resolution for both informal claims and formal complaints of discrimination. Any member of the University community and/or any applicant for employment who believes they have been a victim of discrimination, discriminatory harassment or retaliation may initiate an informal claim or formal complaint as outlined in the Discrimination Complaint Procedures.

Hard copies of the Discrimination Complaint Procedures are available in the Human Resources and Affirmative Action Office. The Discrimination Complaint Procedures are also available on the Human Resources website.

Further advice or information regarding the University’s Discrimination Complaint Procedures may be obtained by contacting Jessica Murdoch, Director of Human Resources and Affirmative Action and Designated Coordinator for Title IX, Section 504 and Title II of the ADA, at (978) 665-3172.
