Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Office

President's policy statement on Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action

The University of Akron is committed to a policy of equal employment opportunity and to the principles of affirmative action in accordance with state and federal laws. This commitment is to ensure the prompt and full utilization of protected classes by ensuring equal opportunity in employment opportunities with regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, handicap/disability, and veteran status. The University of Akron will seek to recruit, employ and promote qualified members of protected classes as defined by law. The University's goal is to attain a work force reflecting the diversity of the community in which we live. I personally endorse this policy and expect full cooperation and assistance from everyone involved in or associated with hiring, developing and promoting personnel.
