The Syracuse University Office of Equal Opportunity, Inclusion and Resolution Services, the Chancellor’s Task Force on Sexual and Relationship Violence and the Barnes Center at the Arch would like to bring the Syracuse University community’s attention to a virtual public hearing to be held by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.

- students who have experienced discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity have their legal rights fully met.
