Civil Rights Policy Statements, Laws, and Regulations

The National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) is an agency within the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The USDA NIFA Civil Rights Operating Requirements website includes the civil rights policy statements, laws, and departmental regulations for state land-grant universities.

Civil Rights Poster

Per USDA civil rights policy, a copy of the "And Justice for All" poster should be on display in all Extension offices. This poster provides information for filing a discrimination complaint with the USDA. To request a poster, please contact at Extension Administration at 541-737-1346.


All OSUES faculty and staff are required to complete an online civil rights training. This course provides training to ensure programs offered are as inclusive as possible and that OSUES continues to work toward our goals.
