Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action Statement (January 6, 2011)
The University of Virginia is committed to equal employment opportunity and affirmative action. To fulfill this commitment, the University administers its programs, procedures and practices without regard to age, color, disability, marital status, national or ethnic origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, veteran status, and family medical or genetic information and operates both affirmative action and equal opportunity programs, consistent with resolutions of the Board of Visitors and with federal and state requirements, including the Governor’s Executive Order Number One (2014).
The University’s policies on “Preventing and Addressing Discrimination and Harassment” and “Preventing and Addressing Retaliation” implement this statement. The Office of Equal Opportunity Programs has complaint procedures available to address alleged violations of these policies.
The statement printed above is the University of Virginia's official Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action Statement. The Office of Equal Opportunity Programs requests that it be printed in University catalogs, all recruiting materials (student and personnel), program brochures, and other "official" publications from the University, such as annual reports. It can be set in a smaller typeface and is usually positioned on an inside front or back cover or in the first few pages of a publication.
Beginning in 1988, at the request of the Office for Civil Rights, all University catalogs and major publications must now carry the name and contact information of the Americans with Disabilities Act Coordinator, Section 504 Coordinator, and the Title IX Coordinator, as shown below.
