Welcome to OEO's website. You are as welcome to this space as you will be to our office, which I hereby invite you to visit. We view ourselves as a resource to enable every member of the University community to feel welcome and safe.
OEO's mission is to carry out investigative and monitoring activities to ensure equal employment opportunity and respect for civil rights at WSU. OEO also promotes improvements in relevant policies and procedures and conducts affirmative, pro-active activities that educate, train and inform the WSU community in equal employment opportunity, civil rights, and access issues. OEO also seeks to assist University units to detect and address relevant issues before they become problems.
The vision that guides our work is the following:
Everyone, without exception, has a human right to live, work, study, recreate, express themselves, and pursue their goals at WSU, with equal opportunity, respect, and dignity, in safe, welcoming, accessible, and inclusive environments, free from unlawful bias, discrimination, harassment and obstacles.
If your question is not answered among these web pages, please do not hesitate to drop by our office or call on the telephone.
Raúl M. Sánchez, Director
