Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity

www.uwplatt.edu/human-resources

It is the policy of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville to provide equal opportunity to all individuals regardless of race, color, creed, sex, sexual orientation, age, national origin, ancestry, disability, marital status, pregnancy, political affiliation, arrest or conviction record, identity as a veteran, disabled veteran, Vietnam era veteran, membership in the national guard, state defense force, or any other reserve component of the military forces of the United States or this state. Sexual harassment is illegal and will not be tolerated. Co-workers and supervisors may not retaliate against any employee, student, or job applicant because he or she filed a complaint, assisted in an investigation, or participated in any proceeding alleging discrimination on the foregoing basis.

The university ensures physical accessibility to work environments for persons with disabilities and will provide reasonable accommodations to ensure equal access to employment. Upon request, the university will provide reasonable accommodations for religious observances and practices. The university is committed to a program of affirmative action for women, racial minorities, persons with disabilities, disabled veterans, and veterans of the Vietnam era. While the chancellor assumes overall responsibility for the success of the program, university administrators and supervisors are responsible and accountable for implementation. Authority for monitoring the program is delegated to the director of Human Resources.

Each individual associated with the university is encouraged to pledge a new and revitalized commitment to build and maintain a campus environment free of harassment and discrimination-an environment that fosters mutual respect, recognizes the dignity and worth of all people, and promotes to the fullest, equal employment opportunity through affirmative action.

Students having concerns or questions about discrimination, harassment, or sexual assault are encouraged to contact the Human Resources office (2300 Ullsvik Hall, 608.342.1176). All inquiries will be treated confidentially.
