Michigan Technological University's Office of Institutional Equity is responsible for the implementation of the University's Equal Opportunity and Discrimination/Harassment Policies. Institutional Equity follows the procedures under the Discrimination/Harassment Complaint Process to ensure that employees, students, and visitors are not discriminated against in employment, educational programs and activities on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, height, weight, genetic information, or marital status, disability, or veteran status.
As a federal contractor, we are also required to take affirmative action to ensure all aspects of employment are fair, equitable and free from prohibited discrimination. IE monitors the recruitment, hiring, and employment practices to ensure compliance with these state and federal laws.
It is required by federal regulations that all advertisements contain the EEO statement:
“Michigan Technological University is an Equal Opportunity Educational Institution/Equal Opportunity Employer, which includes providing equal opportunity for protected veterans and individuals with disabilities”.
A shorter version may be used only when word count is under consideration for pricing of ads: "Michigan Tech is an EOE which includes protected veterans and individuals with disabilities."
