AFFIRMATIVE ACTION POLICY
ASU is committed to the goal of equal opportunity for all. This policy is adopted by the Arkansas State University Board of Trustees.
All personnel responsible for hiring employees and recruiting students share a responsibility to support the university’s equal opportunity and affirmative action program and to provide leadership in achieving its goals.
EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY
It is the policy of Arkansas State University to provide equal employment opportunity to all qualified persons; to prohibit discrimination against any employee or applicant for employment because of race, color, ancestry, religion, gender, age, disability, genetic information, national origin, status as a veteran or other status protected by law; and to promote the full realization of equal employment opportunity through a positive continuing program of affirmative action.
It is the responsibility of all departments and all personnel, supervisory and non-supervisory, to see that this policy is implemented throughout the university.
