AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT OF 1990 (ADA)
The University of Guam (UOG) is committed to achieving equal opportunity and full participation of persons with disabilities by providing for non-discriminatory access to its services and facilities through the ADA Office. The Mission of the ADA Office is to ensure non-discriminatory access to all benefits, privileges, opportunities and obligations to students with disabilities and to ensure a process for full compliance by UOG with the ADA of 1990, as amended, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, taking into account the economic climate and multi-cultural diversity of the institution.

EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY
The President of the University of Guam (UOG) is committed to ensuring a work environment free of discrimination and harassment on the basis of any status protected by law, to include: race, sexual orientation, religion, religious creed, age, disability, citizenship status, and national origin,. Administrators, directors, managers and supervisors must inform employees of the policies prohibiting discrimination and harassment, emphasize the policy of zero tolerance, and deal promptly with any problem situations. Each of us is expected to maintain high standards of honesty, integrity and conduct. Discrimination and harassment violate these standards.
Sexual Harassment is a specific form of prohibited harassment and complaints involve sensitive and complex issues. A prompt and effective inquiry into allegations is critical; not only to avoid liability and prevent future harassing behavior, but also to lay the groundwork for successful resolution. A healthy equal opportunity environment does not just happen. It takes commitment and active involvement – by everyone. Ultimately it is not laws, regulations, or policies that create a quality equal opportunity environment, it is people respecting and encouraging other people.
