Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Program Policy Statement

The University of Texas at Austin is an equal employment opportunity employer. The University does not discriminate on any basis prohibited by applicable Federal and/or State law including race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, citizenship status, Vietnam era or special disabled veteran status in recruitment, employment, promotion, compensation, benefits, or training. It is also the University's policy to maintain a work environment free from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. The University of Texas at Austin remains committed to seeking the best-qualified person to fill each available position and will reward each employee based on his or her job performance.

As President, I reaffirm our pledge to base decisions on employment and promotion on the principle of equal employment opportunity. In addition, the University will ensure that all personnel actions will be administered without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, citizenship status, Vietnam era or special disabled veteran status, or sexual orientation.

This Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action policy shall be implemented throughout the University. It is the responsibility of all departments and personnel to ensure the University's compliance. Monitoring and reporting procedures for faculty and classified staff have been instituted and in operation for some years.

At this University, Equal Opportunity Services (formerly, the Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Office) has been established since 1973 to investigate allegations of discrimination. Complaints regarding impermissible discrimination should be brought to Equal Opportunity Services. Linda H. Millstone, the Director of Equal Opportunity Services, reports directly to the President on allegations of discrimination. Any employee who feels he or she has been discriminated against should contact Ms. Millstone, 206 Flawn Academic Center (471-1849). All inquiries will be confidential, to the extent permitted by law, and no employee should fear reprisals.

Equal Employment Opportunity is the law; discrimination is prohibited by the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Executive Order 11246 as amended, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Act of 1974, the Age Discrimination Act of 1967, as amended, the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and the Texas Labor Code, Chapter 21. Anyone who believes he or she has been discriminated against on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, citizenship status, or Vietnam era or special disabled veteran status may contact the United States Government's Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, (both of which are in San Antonio) or the Texas Commission on Human Rights located in Austin.

As University President, I commit this institution to fulfill both the spirit and the law of Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action.

Larry R. Faulkner, President
