Affirmative Action Plan for Equal Employment Opportunity of Women and Minorities

It is the policy and intent of The University of Memphis to provide equal opportunity in employment to all persons. The University of Memphis hereby emphasizes its commitment to equal opportunities for all individuals and provides a program of affirmative action to ensure equal employment opportunity for such persons. This policy applies to all phases of the personnel process, including recruitment, hiring, placement, promotion, demotion, transfer, training, compensation, all other employment terms, conditions, and benefits, discipline and separation; and the policy applies to all locations within the University and to the use of all its facilities.

To implement the declaration of policy herein, the University insures that all applicants for employment and all faculty and staff are aware of the location of the University's affirmative action policy. The policy is widely disseminated inside and outside the University. Further, the University will consider, through a designated grievance procedure, the complaints of any person who feels that he or she has been discriminated against on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or Vietnam/disabled veteran status.

Responsibility for implementation and compliance of the policy has been delegated to Ceecy Reed, Affirmative Action Specialist.

Affirmative Action Plan for Employment of Persons with Disabilities, Disabled Veterans and Vietnam Veterans

It is the policy and intent of The University of Memphis to provide equal opportunity in employment to all persons as provided in the equal employment opportunity policy. The University of Memphis hereby emphasizes its commitment to equal opportunities for applicants and employees with disabilities, including disabled veterans, and veterans of the Vietnam era and provides a program of affirmative action to ensure equal employment opportunity for such persons. It is the policy of The University of Memphis to make reasonable accommodations to the physically and mentally disabled applicants and employees throughout the personnel process. The extent of reasonable accommodation will be determined by consideration of efficient operation of the organization and feasible financial costs, as well as the needs of a disabled employee or prospective employee. This policy applies to all phases of the personnel process including recruitment, hiring, placement, promotion, demotion, transfer, training, compensation, all other employment terms, conditions and benefits, discipline and separation. The policy applies to all locations within the University and to the use of all of its facilities.

To implement the declaration of policy herein, the University has provided an opportunity for presently employed disabled persons, including disabled veterans, to so identify themselves. Applicants for employment are advised of the University's affirmative action policy and are invited to identify disability conditions. Veterans of the Vietnam era are identified by reference to military service dates on the University's New Employee Self-Identification forms. Additionally, each year, employees have the opportunity to identify disability, disabled or Vietnam veteran status. The policy will be widely disseminated both inside and outside the University. Further through designated grievance procedures, the University will consider the complaints of any person who feels that he or she has been discriminated against on the basis of disability or Vietnam/disabled veteran status.

Responsibility for implementation and compliance of the policy has been delegated to Ceecy Reed, Affirmative Action Specialist.

A copy of the affirmative action program including specific responsibilities and provisions for implementation will be made available to any employee who makes a request.
