Policy Statement on Discrimination and Affirmative Action
Notice of Non-Discrimination
New Mexico State University (NMSU) is dedicated to providing equal opportunities in our employment and learning environments. NMSU does not discriminate on the basis of age, ancestry, color, disability, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, retaliation, serious medical condition, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, spousal affiliation, or protected veteran status in its programs and activities as required by equal opportunity/affirmative action regulations and laws and university policy and rules.
NMSU's Office of Institutional Equity is responsible for compliance with state and federal equal employment opportunity laws and affirmative action regulations.

Ms. Millot is also assigned to coordinate compliance with Section 504 and other state and federal laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability in admission, treatment and/or access to its programs and activities.
