Diversity and Affirmative Action
Affirmative action is a series of efforts and/or strategies designed to provide equal consideration for all individuals within the university's employment activity, including hiring, promotion and terminations.
At Carnegie Mellon, this includes the following:
- making an effort to notify women's and minority groups about job openings, rather than relying on word-of-mouth notification;
- taking steps to ensure that minorities and women are included in applicant pools; and
- providing equal opportunities for advancement.
