Equal Opportunity Programs


We follow the lead of state and federal government when maintaining the laws and regulations concerning discrimination and harassment at the University of South Carolina.

Effective November 16, 2018, EOP Policy 1.05 (Sexual Misconduct, Intimate Partner Violence and Stalking) consolidated and replaced STAF Policy 1.08 (Sexual Assault) and STAF Policy 1.09 (Relationship Violence, Stalking and Harassment). Any incidents which occurred before November 16, 2018 shall be covered by STAF 1.08 and/or STAF 1.09, to the extent the provisions of  STAF 1.08 and/or STAF 1.09 apply to the incident.  Any incidents which occurred on or after November 16, 2018 shall be covered by EOP Policy 1.05, to the extent EOP Policy 1.05 applies to the incident.
