List of Open Title VI Shared Ancestry Investigations

As a public service, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) publishes this list of elementary-secondary and post-secondary institutions that are currently under investigation for discrimination involving shared ancestry. OCR updates the list weekly. For the full list of cases under investigation, please see Pending Cases Currently Under Investigation at Elementary-Secondary and Post-Secondary Schools.

Some of the complaints that resulted in OCR opening those investigations, and possibly additional records from those cases, are posted on a Freedom of Information Act library page.

An institution named on this list means that OCR has initiated an investigation of a case concerning that institution. Inclusion on the list does not mean that OCR has made a decision about the case.  For more information about OCR’s case processes, please refer to OCR’s Case Processing Manual
