Non-Discrimination Equal Employment Opportunity Statement:

The Ohio State University is committed to nondiscrimination, equal employment and affirmative action. This commitment is both a matter of law and moral imperative consistent with an intellectual community in which individual differences and diversity are celebrated.

Accordingly, discrimination against any individual for reasons of race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, sex, age, disability or veteran status is specifically prohibited. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits sex discrimination. Title I and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 provides equal employment opportunities and reasonable accommodation, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in educational programs and activities. Equal access to employment opportunities, admissions, educational programs and all other University activities is extended to all persons.

The affirmative action section of this policy is under revision. The University's significant focus on diversity, in conjunction with Diversity Action Plan, creates an environment where affirmative action must both complement and support the University's aspirations for diversity, while retaining an independent identity that meets the requirements of Executive Order 11246.
