Student Non-Discrimination Procedures

Students are entitled to study in an environment free from unlawful discrimination. Any faculty member, administrative, staff, or student employee or student who unlawfully discriminates against a student on the basis of race, color, gender, national origin, religion, age, veteran status, or disability may be subject to sanction. In addition, students who engage in such behavior whether on or off campus may also violate the Church Educational System (CES) Honor Code and be subject to appropriate sanctions.

Students who believe they have been unlawfully discriminated against are encouraged, if practicable and if the incident is minor and isolated, to resolve the matter directly and privately with the offender. If the incident is major and serious, if the misconduct is part of a continuing pattern, or if the student complainant is uncomfortable in resolving the issue directly, the individual should report the incident to the Equal Opportunity Manager, the Honor Code Office, or the 24-hour Hotline. Following is their respective contact information:

Equal Opportunity Manager
D-282 ASB
Telephone:  801-422-5895

Honor Code Office
4440 WSC
Telephone:  801-422-2847

24-hour Hotline:  888-238-1062

If the alleged perpetrator is a university employee or third party such as a vendor or visitor, the Equal Opportunity Manager will investigate and resolve the complaint pursuant to university policy. The complaint may be resolved either through an informal or a formal grievance process with such procedures as the university deems appropriate under the circumstances. If the alleged perpetrator is a student, the matter may be coordinated between the Equal Opportunity Manager and the Honor Code Office to investigate and resolve the complaint pursuant to both university policy and the CES Honor Code.

THE UNIVERSITY RESERVES THE ABSOLUTE RIGHT TO DEVIATE FROM THESE PROCEDURES.
