The mission of the University of Virginia's Office for Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights (EOCR) is to ensure equal opportunity and to protect the civil rights of all University community members through proactive outreach, education, and effective response and resolution.

If assistance with translations of EOCR-related policies or information into additional languages is needed, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and put "Translation Request" in the subject line.
