Affirmative Action/Equal Employment Opportunity - Human Resources at Ohio State
Affirmative Action/Equal Employment Opportunity
The Ohio State University is a diverse community of people and ideas. As part of the university’s commitment to diversity, Ohio State aims to be a standard of excellence for employment equity in higher education.
The Office of Institutional Equity oversees the university’s strategies and compliance efforts related to employment equity, including Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity. This oversight includes coordination and enforcement of the Ohio State’s Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity, and Non-Discrimination/Harassment policy.
Affirmative Action is designed to help eliminate effects of past and present discrimination. It is a process in which employers identify areas of improvement, set goals and take positive steps to enhance opportunities for individuals with disabilities, minorities, veterans and women. Affirmative Action focuses on hiring, training and promoting qualified protected class members where they are underrepresented.
