Under Wisconsin law, a student may not be denied admission to, participation in or the benefits of, or be discriminated against in any service, program, course or facility of the University because of the student's race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin, disability, ancestry, age, sexual orientation, pregnancy, marital status or parental status. S.36.12, Wisconsin Statutes, also requires that the University establish policies and procedures to protect students from discrimination and report annually to the Legislature the number of complaints received in violation of this law and the disposition of each complaint.
Federal laws also prohibit discrimination against students and require that the University have procedures for complaints of discrimination on the basis of disability (s.504 and ADA) and sex (Title IX). Discrimination also is prohibited on the basis of race, color and national origin under Title VI.
