Compliance and Policy
Carnegie Mellon is committed to fulfilling our responsibilities by complying with all government regulations pertaining to equal opportunity. For comprehensive and practical guidelines on how to incorporate diversity recruiting and hiring processes, go to the Diversity Resource Guide.
Monitoring Affirmative Action
- Equal Opportunity Services monitors employment activity to ensure that the university's non-discriminatory policy is carried out. Monitoring is conducted semi-annually. Procedures are reviewed if problems are identified.
- Progress on Carnegie Mellon's Affirmative Action Plan is discussed at senior management meetings. Relevant information is broadly communicated to employees through the Diversity Advisory Council's Annual Report.
- The AVP for Diversity and Equal Opportunity Services reports regularly to the university president on the effectiveness of the program and submits recommendations to improve any unsatisfactory performance.
- A summary of the "Affirmative Action Plan for Minorities and Females," as well as the "Plans for Workers with Disabilities and Vietnam Era Veterans," may be reviewed by employees and applicants for employment. This information is available in the Human Resources Office in Whitfield Hall.
Americans with Disabilities Act Compliance—ADA Committee
The ADA Committee is responsible for ensuring that the university is in compliance with the obligations imposed on our "places of public accommodation." Each year, the ADA Committee evaluates potential accommodations and allocates funds for projects designed to make the campus more accessible to all.
To recommend a project that will improve accessibility, or to request an accommodation due to your own disability, please contact Disability Resources.
Sensitivity Awareness and Training
Human Resources and Equal Opportunity Services provide a variety of workshops and seminars related to diversity. Contact your Human Resources Manager to discuss what program best meets the needs of your department or group.
