University Policies

Discrimination, Harassment, and Inappropriate Romantic Relationships


The University of Connecticut (the “University”) is committed to maintaining a safe and non-discriminatory learning, living and working environment for all members of the University community – students, employees, and visitors.  Academic and professional excellence can exist only when each member of our community is assured an atmosphere of safety and mutual respect.  All members of the University community are responsible for the maintenance of an environment in which people are free to learn and work without fear of discrimination, discriminatory harassment or interpersonal violence.  Discrimination diminishes individual dignity and impedes equal employment and educational opportunities.

The Office of Institutional Equity


The Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) ensures the University’s commitment and responsibility to foster diverse and inclusive working and learning environments. Our work focuses on ensuring compliance with the University’s non-discrimination and anti-harassment policies, as well as state and federal laws and regulations related to equal opportunity and affirmative action.  OIE’s major areas of focus include:



The Department of Chemistry expects all scientific endeavors to be conducted with the highest degree of professionalism and ethical conduct.  We expect our graduate students to read and thoroughly understand the information in the booklet entitled “On Being a Scientist” which is available from Emilie Hogrebe in room A-115.

All UConn Graduate students are also expected to follow the Student Code of Conduct with is available at this website:
