We strictly prohibit discrimination based on race, national origin, age, genetic or family medical history, gender, faith, gender identity, and expression as well as sexual orientation. UAB also encourages applications from individuals with disabilities and veterans. UAB does not tolerate harassment of any kind, including sexual harassment or sexual violence. We uphold all federal laws prohibiting discrimination, including Title IX of the Education Amendment Act of 1972, the federal law that requires all entities receiving federal government funds and financial assistance to prohibit sex discrimination in their programs and activities. This comprehensive law prohibits sexual harassment and sexual discrimination; termination, discrimination, or failure to promote or admit based on pregnancy; and discrimination in athletic opportunities.

The Office for Institutional Equity helps ensure an environment free of harassment and discrimination by coordinating, collaborating and implementing UAB policies related to discrimination and harassment.
