Cadet Equity Association

The purpose of the Cadet Equity Association (CEA) is to provide education on equity to the Corps of Cadets, according to the guidelines established by the Superintendent’s Statement on Equity at VMI, and to maintain a post wide climate of respect and equitable treatment for cadets. 

The mission of these cadets is to receive reports of incidents concerning sexual harassment and discrimination, to investigate these matters when appropriate, and to protect the privacy of the individuals involved insofar as it is possible.  Cadets serving on the CEA receive training in procedures related to investigations and legal issues that involve gender, racial, religious, and ethnic discrimination. Sexual harassment infractions, depending on their magnitude, will be handled through the appropriate agency.
