Diversity, Equity, or Civility Concern Reporting (DECC)

In keeping with the University of Central Arkansas (UCA) non-discrimination policy in employment, admissions, and other functions and programs, UCA does not discriminate against a person on the basis of gender, race or color, ethnicity, religion, spiritual beliefs, national origin, age, familial status, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation, disability, political beliefs, intellectual perspective, genetic information, military status, or other factors irrelevant to participation in its programs.

In alignment with UCA’s core values of community, collegiality, integrity, and respect, we believe in processes of shared decision-making based on productive synergistic interactions among our students, faculty, and staff, and disciplines in the pursuit of institutional goals. We support a community and climate of respect and thoughtfulness among students, faculty, staff, and the people of our community, state, nation, and the world. To that end, all individuals are worthy of dignity and value; therefore, communications should contribute to mutual respect, campus collaboration, and positive associations.

DECC is an option for students and campus guests to report acts of discrimination, inequities, or incivility in the UCA community. Reports of discrimination, inequities, or incivility may be made to the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion at: idi@uca.edu or 501.450.3135.
