OIE Annual Report
SUNY Upstate Medical University (“Upstate”) is committed to maintaining a work, educational, and clinical care environment that is respectful and welcoming to all.
SUNY Upstate’s Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) is tasked with administering the University’s policies pertaining to non-discrimination and harassment prevention. Taken together, these policies prohibit all forms of discrimination and harassment based on race, color, national origin, religion, age, disability, sex, gender, pregnancy, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, transgender status, predisposing genetic characteristics, marital status, familial status, veteran status, military status, domestic violence victim status, criminal conviction record, or any other category protected under state, federal, or local law (“protected class”).
OIE was created in May 2020, when the Office of Diversity and Inclusion was bifurcated into two new offices; OIE and the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI).While ODEI focuses on large scale diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives and training across the university, OIE focuses on individual complaints and concerns related to protected class discrimination and harassment, and engages in training opportunities relating to these areas.
In this inaugural report, OIE includes information from the 2021-2022 fiscal year.The report has been developed with the purposes of increasing awareness and promoting transparency.The data contained in this report consists of reports made or referred to OIE from all areas of Upstate.
