The Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law is committed to supporting, encouraging and fostering an open and inclusive community that respects the dignity of each individual, embraces diversity as a means of promoting a learning environment, encourages an exchange of information, values, and ideas, and is free of discrimination, harassment, and intimidation.

To that end, Cardozo's Non-discrimination, Affirmative Action and Sexual Harassment and Assault policy works to ensure that its programs are administered in a manner that does not discriminate on the basis of any individual's or group's actual or perceived race, religion, color, creed, age, national origin or ancestry, sex, marital status, physical or mental disability, veteran or disabled veteran status, genetic predisposition/carrier status, sexual orientation, gender identity, citizenship status, or other categories protected by law, or in retaliation for opposition to any practices proscribed by this policy.

If a student believes that they have been the victim of discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or assault they are encouraged to speak with the Dean of Students and Associate Dean of Student Services in room 1000 or the Director of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Nicole Seawright, in room 1045 (nicole.seawright@yu.edu).

If you require emergency assistance, please dial 911 or contact Cardozo Law Security Desk at 212-790-0303.
