The Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law is committed to supporting, encouraging and fostering an open and inclusive community that respects the dignity of each individual, embraces diversity as a means of promoting a learning environment, encourages an exchange of information, values, and ideas, and is free of improper discrimination, harassment, and intimidation.
To that end, Cardozo's Non-discrimination, Affirmative Action and Sexual Harassment and Assault policy works to ensure that its programs are administered in a manner that does not improperly discriminate on the basis of any individual's or group's actual or perceived race, sex, religion, creed, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, veteran or disabled veteran status, marital or civil union or domestic partner status, citizenship status, or other categories protected by law, or in retaliation for opposition to any practices proscribed by this policy.
If a student believes that s/he has been the victim of improper discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or assault s/he is encouraged to speak with someone in the Office of Student Services and Advising, room 1043.

When warranted, the University will take appropriate corrective action to remedy all violations of this policy, up to and including termination and/or expulsion. Where appropriate, the University may also report discriminatory conduct to licensing boards. Yeshiva University prohibits any form of retaliation against any employee or student for filing a bona fide complaint, or for assisting in a complaint investigation.
