Affirmative Action
Affirmative Action/Equity & Diversity Statement

The University of Nebraska recruits and encourages individuals, regardless of their race, color, religion, sex, national origin or religious beliefs, as faculty, students, staff and administrators at this institution. We also believe certain groups in the American experience have been historically denied and placed at significant disadvantage to pursue economic and academic opportunities, through systemic and institutional gender and racial bias. The University of Nebraska does not discriminate based on race, color, ethnicity, national origin, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, genetic information, veteran status, marital status, and/or political affiliation in its programs, activities, or employment.

In 1991, the Board of Regents established goals and strategies to enhance the recruitment and retention of women. In 1993, the Board of Regents established goals and strategies to enhance the recruitment and retention of minorities. Annual progress reports are presented to the Board by faculty and staff who comprise campus commissions on the status of women and campus diversity commissions. Campus-based initiatives provide a wealth of resources to students, faculty, staff and the community.
