The University expresses and demonstrates its commitment to equal opportunity for all persons in the University community, regardless of race, color, sex, age, ethnicity, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, marital status, or status as disabled or Vietnam-era veteran. This policy applies to all University offices, departments, and affiliates, including part-time students, faculty and staff members.

According to Federal and/or State guidelines:

  1. Equal opportunity is a system of employment and educational practices under which individuals are included in participation and benefits regardless of their race, color, sex age, ethnicity, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, marital status, or status as a disabled or Vietnam-era veteran.
  2. Affirmative action requires that the University take specific actions and make special efforts to recruit, employ, and promote qualified members of formerly excluded or clearly underrepresented groups.

All members of the University community must abide by the rules, regulations, and policies of equal employment/educational opportunity and affirmative action.

Affirmative action and equal opportunity affect all employment practices including, but not limited to, recruitment, hiring, transfers, promotions, benefits, compensation, training, educational opportunities, and terminations. To further ensure the goals of equal opportunity and affirmative action with respect to employment and education, the University endeavors to increase the availability of opportunities for students, staff, and faculty from groups that have been previously excluded or underrepresented. Students or employees having disabilities that require reasonable accommodations or auxiliary aids may be accommodated through the Office of the ADA Coordinator.
