Part 4. Personnel Policies

Section I. General Personnel Policies

I. The EEO/Affirmative Action Program (Updated 5/02)

1. Employment

Idaho State University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action institution. The University's Affirmative Action Policy seeks to ensure that all of its policies and procedures include and are in conformity with, but not limited to, the requirements of Federal Executive Orders 11246 and 11375, Title VI of the Education Amendments of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, and all other state and federal non-discrimination statutes. The institution recruits, employs, compensates and promotes personnel in all areas of the work force (administration, faculty, staff and students) on an equal and impartial basis in accordance with the provisions of the Idaho Division of Human Resources and Personnel Commission, where applicable, regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, age, disability status, or sex* except where sex is a bona fide occupational qualification as defined in federal regulations. Mindful of the goals set as part of this policy, an individual's qualifications for the available position will be the determining factor in employment, promotion and other terms and conditions of employment.

The University is responsible for evaluating its employment practices to ensure against discrimination. In addition, the University takes the responsibility for disseminating information regarding its Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Policy. All University personnel are expected to assume responsibility for assisting in the achievement of the goals set forth in the EEO/Affirmative Action Program. Discrimination by any member of the administration, faculty, staff, or supporting services against any individual (students, employees or applicants for employment or admission to the University or any of its programs) based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age or disability status will constitute a violation of the University's EEO/Affirmative Action Program and will subject the member to such disciplinary action as recommended by the EEO/Affirmative Action Grievance Committee and/or EEO/Affirmative Action Officer and approved by the President and/or State Board of Education.

* Hereinafter may be referred to as "individuals with legally protected status."

2. Students

Idaho State University endeavors to achieve equal educational opportunity for individuals with legally protected status through recruitment, admission, curricular and extracurricular programs, advising and retention practices, and student aid and employment. The following procedures are basic to this policy:

a. The University will encourage individuals with legally protected status to enroll.

b. The University favors the active recruitment of individuals with legally protected status through available programs such as TRIO Student Services, ADA and Disabilities Resource Center, Veterans' Affairs, Scholarships, and Financial Aid.

NOTE: The EEO/Affirmative Action Policy in its entirety may be found in Appendix A.
