Where to turn

The Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) is the centralized office established to respond to protected class discrimination, harassment and sexual misconduct. Harassment and discrimination can take many forms, including acts of hate and violence. When these acts occur, know there are so many resources at Ohio State and the surrounding communities.

Students, employees required to take sexual misconduct prevention training

Every year, Ohio State requires students and employees to complete online training designed to help them recognize, prevent and report sexual misconduct and to educate them about resources to help those who might have experienced sexual misconduct. All students and employees were notified by email of this requirement in early September 2023. 

Support for Pregnancy and Related Conditions

Every pregnancy is different and comes with different needs.

The law prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, including discrimination based on pregnancy or related conditions, and providing support for individuals experiencing pregnancy or related conditions aligns with our shared values of Care and Compassion, and Inclusion and Equity.

What we stand for
