Article VII - Discrimination

  1. Any violation of the basic rights of a human being is contrary to the very nature of a university. The regents‟ antidiscrimination policy is as follows:
    1. Practices or regulations that discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability, or status as a Vietnam-era veteran, as each of these bases is defined by law, are neither condoned nor permitted in any area of UI operations, including personnel appointments, student admissions, housing assignments, use of dining halls, classrooms, or other facilities, or in any activities of the faculty, staff, or students that may be commonly regarded as sponsored or sanctioned by UI.
    2. Nothing herein shall be deemed to affect the classification of persons based on the differences between males and females or between other classed or groups that is not irrational, capricious, or arbitrary, and that is intended to accomplish a lawful purpose (e.g., women‟s or men‟s living groups may exclude persons of the opposite sex, and students with substandard grades may be denied membership in honor societies and other groups having minimum grade requirements).
  2. Any student conduct that violates this policy shall, upon due proof, be a violation of this code.
