In accordance with the Non-Discrimination & Anti-Harassment Policy, EVMS expressly prohibits discrimination or harassment based on race, color, sex (including sexual orientation, gender identity/transgender status, and pregnancy or parental status), national origin, religion, age, disability, veteran status, genetic information, opposition to unlawful discrimination (i.e., retaliation), or any other protected basis as set forth in federal or state law and/or EVMS policy.

In addition, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal sex/gender equity law that governs how educational institutions receiving federal funds must respond to allegations of sex and gender-based discrimination, harassment, violence, and/or retaliation. 

Any employee, student, or applicant for employment or admission to EVMS who believes that they have been discriminated against on the basis of sex, in violation of Title IX, or has been a victim of sexual harassment may file a complaint with one of the Title IX Coordinators outlined below.
