Our goal is to provide education and to better understand any concerns about discrimination or harassment in your educational environment. This MasonEO briefing will cover, at a minimum, DEI mission and organization, Mason nondiscrimination policies, types and bases of discrimination, rights and responsibilities, and reporting/complaints processing for students.  Additionally, MasonEO is eager to field questions and discussion points that will inform future outreach efforts and informational campaigns.
