About Us

The focal point of the University of Florida’s Institutional Equity & Diversity office is to ensure equitable treatment of all students and employees. We network with all aspects of campus employment in order to work toward a learning and working environment free of discrimination and harassment for current as well as prospective students and employees.

Every employee counts! We can help you with information or concerns about fair-hiring practices, high-quality work environments, as well as the diversity of our great staff and faculty.

Our primary responsibilities for developing, implementing, and executing polices related to equity in employment are guided by Florida Statutes. Don’t hesitate to contact:
