What if a member of the public wants to file a complaint?

Extension is committed to nondiscrimination and takes complaints related to civil rights, Affirmative Action, Equal Employment Opportunity, and sexual harassment very seriously. A complaint or charge of discrimination or harassment can be registered by any person (employee, program or activity participant, job applicant, visitor, volunteer, etc.) who has reason to believe that they have been subjected to or witnessed unlawful discrimination, harassment, or retaliation in an Extension education program or activity, or in the employment setting.
