New Discrimination Policy Adopted

LEXINGTON, Va., July 11, 2014 – VMI has adopted a new unified policy on discrimination, harassment, sexual misconduct and retaliation that combines requirements of three previous policies.  The new policy took effect earlier this month.

The new policy, General Order 16, replaces a previous General Order 16 and General Orders 22 and 52.
In addition to this comprehensive policy, which is designed to prevent illegal discrimination of any kind, is a new process for handling discrimination grievances.  The basic policy and an appendix outlining this new procedure is available online at

The Inspector General/Title IX Coordinator's Office is the proponent for the new policy.
