The University is committed to ensuring that employment decisions are based on individuals’ competencies and qualifications. Consistent with this principle and applicable laws, the University does not discriminate with respect to employment terms and conditions on the basis of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veterans’ status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. This policy ensures that only relevant factors are considered and that equitable and consistent standards are applied to all personnel actions. More information and a copy of the University’s SPA Equal Opportunity Plans are available on the Equal Opportunity and Compliance Office website.
The diversity of our staff brings strength to the University. Our focus on diversity with each search, gives us the opportunity to hire, attract and retain the talented staff we want and need to continue our legacy of excellence. An online training module for Supervisors and Search Committees is available and provides valuable information, helpful advice and proven techniques to enable our search committees to run more efficiently. This 60-minute module can be accessed here and is encouraged for SPA recruitment.
