I'm experiencing race-based harassment or discrimination.

The University of Maryland is an equal-opportunity institution with respect to both education and employment. The university does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, age, national origin, sex, or disability in admission to or access to, or treatment of employment in its programs and activities, as required by federal law (Title VI, Title IX, Section 504) and state laws and regulations.

Harassing someone based on that person’s race or color, also known as race-based harassment, is unlawful. Race-based harassment includes

  • Racial Slurs

  • Offensive or derogatory remarks

  • Display of racially offensive symbols. 

Harassment is illegal when it is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile environment or adverse event.
