Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action

Policy: It is the policy of Lamar University not to discriminate on the basis of non-relevant criteria including, but not limited to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status in its

educational programs, activities, admissions, or employment practices.

Equal Employment Opportunity and Workforce Diversity: In regard to employment, it is the policy of the University to insure equal employment opportunity to all individuals. This means that the University will seek to insure by all lawful means at its disposal that all prohibited discriminatory conditions in employment are eliminated and that employment policies do not operate to the detriment of any person on the grounds of non-relevant criteria including, but not limited to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status. The University will also insure that the practices of those responsible in matters of employment and supervision are nondiscriminatory and further, that the University will take affirmative action to recruit, employ and promote qualified members of underutilized groups. This policy is extended uniformly to the employment of all individuals.

3. Responsibility: It is the responsibility of the University's management to insure that the University and all its constituencies comply with the provisions of this policy, and with all Federal and State laws, executive orders and regulations regarding equal opportunity and affirmative action. The Associate Vice President for Human Resources shall serve as Affirmative Action officer for staff and administrative employees; the Academic Deans shall serve as Affirmative Action officers for the faculty. Final responsibility for university efforts rests with the President of Lamar University. Specifically, all departments of the University will:

3.1 Follow policies of recruitment, employment, upgrading, promotion, transfer, training, lay off, or dismissal for all categories of employees, without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression. The sex, disability or age of an employee may be considered only when sex, disability, or age is demonstrably a bona fide occupational qualification (BFOQ).

3.2 Determine all matters of employment and of subsequent promotion to a higher position only upon the individual's qualifications for the position for which he/she is to be considered.

3.3 Administer equitably all programs involving salary, fringe benefits, and participation in the affairs of the University, for all individuals without regard to any of the characteristics named above.
