Faculty Recruitment: Affirmative Action Policies & Procedures

Old Dominion University is committed to a policy of positive affirmative action in the recruitment of women and minorities and of non-discrimination in employment practices. Equal opportunity for employment shall be provided to all applicants on the basis of their demonstrated ability and competence without regard to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, political affiliation or veteran status. The attached university forms and procedural guidelines must be used by all deans, directors, and chairpersons in a conscientious manner. This will help assure the effective implementation of this policy. It will also assist the Assistant Vice President of Institutional Equity and Diversity, your Vice President, and the President, to evaluate and document campus affirmative action efforts and to provide documentation of those efforts.

Please use the current forms provided on the Institutional Equity and Diversity Web Site. These forms supersede all previous faculty forms, which should be discarded. Additional copies may be requested from the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity or Academic Affairs as needed. These forms should be completed as FULLY AND ACCURATELY AS POSSIBLE.
