Welcome to the Office of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Compliance (EDIC) at Ramapo College of New Jersey. This office was created in October 2016 with the goal of providing point and coordinating leadership for diversity, inclusion, compliance and equity issues throughout the college. EDIC is comprised of the following offices: Office of Affirmative Action and Workplace Compliance; Office of Title IX, ADA and Compliance Training; and Equity and Diversity Programs for Students.
EDIC coordinates with the Admissions Department, the Office of the Provost and the Human Resources Department to further develop the College’s recruitment and hiring programs and practices in an effort to further increase the number of diverse faculty, staff and students at Ramapo College. In addition, through the Offices of Affirmative Action and Workplace Compliance and Title IX, all complaints of discrimination, sexual harassment and hostile work environment and alleged violations of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”), including claims of sexual assault and misconduct, as well as alleged violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) will be promptly and thoroughly investigated. EDIC also will continue to develop diversity awareness workshops and programs and provide discrimination and sexual harassment training sessions for all College administrators, faculty and staff.
