UA Little Rock adheres to a policy that enables all individuals, regardless of race, color, national or ethnic origin, age, religion, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and expression, pregnancy, military or veteran status, marital or parental status, or genetic information to work and study in an environment unfettered by discriminatory behavior or acts. Harassment of an individual or group will not be condoned, and any person (student, faculty, or staff member) who violates this policy will be subject to disciplinary action.

Harassment that is considered discriminatory includes actions or conduct (verbal, graphic, gestural, or written) directed against any person or group with the intent to demean or create a hostile or threatening environment. It is not the intent of this policy to infringe upon or limit educational, scholarly, or artistic expression. Any person who believes he or she has been discriminated against should contact the Department of Human Resources to obtain assistance and information concerning filing a complaint.

At the same time, the university prohibits discriminatory practices; it promotes equal opportunity through affirmative action. Non-discriminatory affirmative action equal opportunity policies apply to recruitment, hiring, job classification and placement, work conditions, promotional opportunities, demotions/transfers, terminations, training, compensation, choice of contractors and suppliers of goods and services, educational opportunities, disciplinary action, recreational and social activities, use of facilities, housing, and university-sponsored programs.
