University Policy Statement
Affirmative Action Policy
California State University, Fullerton is committed to ensure equal opportunities in its educational programs, educational activities, and employment without regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin, ancestry, marital status, pregnancy, age, sexual preference, disability or veteran's status.
On the basis of this commitment, the following guidelines serve as a framework for effective cooperative action on the part of all members of the California State University, Fullerton community.
II. GENERAL PRINCIPLES
Dedicated to providing excellence in an educational institution, the California State University, Fullerton Affirmative Action Program is designed to achieve gender and ethnic diversity throughout the campus faculty, staff and administration. Realization of this goal will be attained through aggressive recruitment, establishment of professional development and retention oriented programs with special emphasis placed on the participation of women and minorities in these activities and the timely monitoring of selection and promotional processes.
Compliance with affirmative action programs will be measured by good faith action and by the reasonable rate of progress of academic and administrative departments towards increasing the representation of women and minorities at all levels of employment and eliminating underutilization of these groups. In selections from among candidates of substantially equal qualifications, the candidates from the underutilized group(s) should be given preference.
III. DEPARTMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY
All departments will make good faith efforts through:
The Board annually reviews the Affirmative Action progress of faculty, administrative and student service professional hiring and promotional activity on a campus-wide basis as well as progress within each individual school or appropriate unit.
This Board shall be composed as follows:
Each member shall serve for two years and terms will be rotated. The representation indicated above must include a significant number of women and ethnic minorities.
