    Policy

    Adelphi University shall take affirmative steps and apply good faith effort toward achieving non-discrimination and equality of opportunity in educational, student programs, and employment actions.

    The University undertakes to comply fully with all applicable federal, state and local laws relating to equal employment opportunity, affirmative action, and non-discrimination in services to the public.

    It is Adelphi University’s policy to maintain a voluntary program of Affirmative Action to which efforts will be directed to review and update existing practices both for conformity with government regulations and for consistency with the standards of conduct that are endemic to a University.

    The adoption and implementation of this Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Policy (AA/EEO) acknowledges Adelphi University’s responsibility and commitment to provide an equal opportunity workplace. Reports of concerns about this policy should be made to the Office of Human Resources.

    It is the supervisor’s responsibility to ensure that every effort is made by their employees and themselves to administer all student services and employment actions on an equal opportunity basis. All employment actions, such as interviews, promotions, training, work hours, etc.; as well as student services are performed on an equal opportunity basis according to Adelphi University’s Affirmative Action/Equal Employment Opportunity policy.
