The Affirmative Action Office is responsible for monitoring and ensuring the proper implementation of policies and procedures related to equal employment opportunity, affirmative action, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. “Affirmative Action” means “positive action”, undertaken with conviction and effort, to overcome the present effects of past practices, policies, or any barriers to equal employment opportunity. This includes the goal of full and fair participation of any groups that have been found historically to be under-utilized in the workforce or otherwise adversely affected.  The purpose and goal of affirmative action is equal employment opportunity.
