This policy applies to all offices and divisions of Gallaudet University.


Gallaudet University is an equal opportunity employer/educational institution and does not discriminate on the basis of race, hearing status, disability, religion, color, national origin, age, sex, covered veterans status, marital status, personal appearance, sexual orientation, family responsibilities, matriculation, political affiliation, source of income, place of business or residence, pregnancy, childbirth, or any other unlawful basis. This policy is in compliance with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Rehabilitation Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the District of Columbia Human Rights Act, and other applicable laws and applies to all procedures affecting applicants and employees including, but not necessarily limited to: recruitment, hiring, placement, promotion, transfer, reassignment, reappointment, tenure, demotion, selection for training, layoff, furlough, and termination, compensation, and all other conditions or privileges of employment. Notices of non-discrimination are posted in conspicuous places
to be viewed by both employees and applicants.

To further demonstrate its commitment to equal employment opportunities, the University has established a completely voluntary affirmative action plan to promote the employment and advancement of deaf and hard of hearing people, disabled individuals, and members of traditionally underrepresented groups, women, disabled veterans, and veterans of the Vietnam era.

Applicants are requested to voluntarily provide information relative to ethnicity, sex, hearing status, disability, and veteran status. This information is maintained confidentially and is used for affirmative action purposes only.

The University's Director of Equal Opportunity Programs is responsible for ensuring compliance with this policy.
