Admissions & Aid
At Brooklyn College, we believe that diversity is one of our greatest assets, and fostering this diversity is central to our mission. The Office of Diversity and Equity provides education about and facilitates the college’s compliance with state and federal affirmative action and nondiscrimination laws, including laws prohibiting sexual harassment. The office also implements university policies that enforce those laws.
In order to ensure a safe environment for all members of our community, the Office of Diversity and Equity is charged with the responsibility of addressing and investigating complaints involving discrimination and sexual misconduct, and ensuring that reasonable accommodations and academic adjustments are provided when needed. To file a complaint, contact the Title IX coordinator (contact information below) and/or complete and submit the appropriate complaint form:
