It is the policy of The University of Arizona to provide equal
employment opportunity without regard to race, color, religion, sex,
national origin, age, disability, veteran's status, or sexual
The University of Arizona is also a Federal government contractor
and, as such, has certain obligations to take affirmative action to
ensure that its policies and practices are, in fact, non-discriminatory.
Therefore, it is our policy to take affirmative action to employ and
advance in employment covered veterans, individuals with disabilities,
women, and minorities. Where required by law, The University of Arizona
has established goals by which we may measure our progress in employing
persons based on individual ability and merit and in the numbers
reasonably expected based on their availability.
The University of Arizona makes good faith efforts to reach covered
veterans, individuals with disabilities, women, and minorities with
information about our equal opportunity policy and, specifically, about
employment opportunities at the University. This recruitment effort is
particularly important for jobs where women or minorities are not
currently participating in the numbers expected by their availability.
It is the policy of the University of Arizona to invite all interested
persons, both from outside the University and from within the
University community, to apply for such opportunities.
As a matter of law and as a matter of University policy, selection
for opportunities for hire, promotion, transfer, or training, as well
as decisions regarding demotion, termination, layoff, or other terms
and conditions of employment shall occur without regard to race, color,
religion, sex, national original, or other prohibited basis.
The University has formally assigned the responsibilities contained
in its written Affirmative Action Plans for Women and Minorities and
for Individuals with Disabilities, Special Disabled Veterans, Veterans
of the Vietnam Era, and other covered veterans to each vice president,
dean, director, department head, manager and supervisor and the
University does insist that these employees adhere to the commitment
made in each Affirmative Action Plan.
