Senate Bill 18-19-16

Bill ID: 18-19-16
Name: Review of the University of Maryland Non-Discrimination Policy and Procedures
Proposed: 05/02/2018
Sponsor: Joint President/Senate Inclusion & Respect Task Force
Proposal: In April 2018, the Joint President/Senate Inclusion & Respect Task Force presented its recommendations to the Senate and the President for review and approval. Among its recommendations, the Task Force suggested minor revisions to the Non-Discrimination Policy to clarify the jurisdiction of the policy given the new Policy on Threatening and Intimidating Conduct. The Task Force recommended that the University Senate should charge its Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Committee with a comprehensive review of the Non-Discrimination Policy & Procedures to consider whether broader changes were needed. The EDI Committee was charged with this review in fall 2018.


Status: Under Review
Under Review By: Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion (EDI) Committee
Received: 10/26/2018
Decision Due By: 03/01/2018
Actions: The EDI Committee learned that new federal regulations may affect the committee’s review of the policy and would likely require changes to definitions in other related policies in order to align them with the Non-Discrimination Policy. After reviewing each of these factors with the Office of Civil Rights and Sexual Misconduct, the Office of General Counsel, and the Office of the President, the EDI Committee agreed to delay the its findings until the next academic year.
Next Step: SEC Review
