Equal Opportunity Office

UWF is committed to equal opportunity and to compliance with all federal, state, and local laws that prohibit discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.


University of West Florida (University) is an equal opportunity employer and educational provider committed to a policy of non-discrimination for any member of the University's community on the basis of age, color, disability, genetic information, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation), veteran status or any other legally protected group status. This policy applies to faculty, staff, students, visitors, applicants, and contractors in a manner consistent with applicable laws, regulations, ordinances, orders, and University policies, procedures, and processes.

The University is committed to ensuring that each member of the University community is permitted to work and learn in an environment which is free from discrimination and harassment.  The Equal Opportunity Office is responsible for accomplishing this objective by:

  • Working to maintain an environment free from discrimination and harassment and ensuring compliance with all applicable local, state, and federal laws.
  • Addressing reports of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation, involving the University community, consisting of prospective and enrolled students, prospective and current employees, and visitors.
  • Promoting an inclusive work and educational environment where the faculty, staff, and students are treated fairly, recognized for individuality, and rewarded for performance.
  • Developing policies and procedures to enhance equal opportunity for the University community.
  • Communicating the University's commitment through training, education, and program development.

Faculty, staff and students are strongly encouraged to report allegations of discrimination, harassment and/or retaliation. Delaying the immediate reporting of an allegation often hinders a proper investigation and can also unnecessarily subject a potential Complainant to continued discrimination, harassment and/or retaliation.

If you have a good-faith belief that you have experienced discrimination, harassment or retaliation on the basis of one or more protected class, you may contact the Equal Opportunity Office or the Equal Opportunity Coordinator, Candace Freeman, at 850.474.2694.

The University of West Florida is an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer supporting an inclusive educational and work environment.
