Welcome to the Office of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Compliance at Ramapo College of New Jersey. In October 2016, this Office was created with the goal of providing point and coordinating leadership for diversity, inclusion, compliance and equity issues throughout the college. As such, the Office of Affirmative Action and Workplace Compliance and the Office of Title IX, ADA and Compliance Training are now departments within the new Office of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Compliance.
Our Office 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. The Office 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.
