Affirmative Action Program

The Code adopted by the Board of Governors of The University of North Carolina affirms the following statement:

Admission to, employment by, and promotion in The University of North Carolina and all of its constituent institutions shall be on the basis of merit, and there shall be no discrimination against any person on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disability, or because of the person's honorable service in the armed services of the United States. (Chapter 1, Section 103)

At The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, the following statement has been formulated to express the commitment to Affirmative Action:

In addition to adherence to the UNCG Policy on Discriminatory Conduct, the University aims to achieve within all areas of employment a diverse faculty and staff capable of providing for excellence in the education of its students and for the enrichment of the total University community. In seeking to fill openings, every effort will be made to recruit in such a way that women, minorities, disabled persons, and veterans will have an equal opportunity to be considered for and appointed to all vacant positions. All appointments, promotions, and all other personnel actions, such as compensation, benefits, transfers, training and educational programs, tuition assistance, travel assistance, research grants, support for graduate assistants, social and recreational programs, will be administered without regard to race, color, creed, religion, gender, national origin, age, political affiliation, sexual orientation, or disabling condition in such manner as is consistent with achieving a staff of diverse and competent persons.

Overall responsibility for the development and implementation of the University’s Affirmative Action Plan resides with the Chancellor. The Affirmative Action Committee and the Affirmative Action Office have been given the responsibility to monitor the effectiveness of the University’s Affirmative Action Program and to assist in affirmative action policy and planning. This does not diminish in any way the responsibilities of deans, department heads, managers, and supervisors to assist in administering the affirmative action policy and planning through promulgation of information.

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro reaffirms its commitment to equality of opportunity in its relationships with all members of the University community.

All employees of the University are expected to support the principle of and contribute to the realization of equal employment opportunity. Affirmative action is a priority concern in all facets of operation.
