Guidelines for Using Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Statements

Affirmative action/equal opportunity statements must be included on all publications. If a question exists concerning the statement to be included, contact the campus Affirmative Action/EEO Office. One of the following is acceptable for most publications:

1. The University of Nebraska is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity institution.

2. The University of Nebraska does not discriminate in its academic, employment, or admissions policies and abides by all federal, state, and regional regulations pertaining to same.

3. It is the policy of the University of Nebraska not to discriminate on the basis of age, handicap, race, color, religion, marital status, veteran’s status, national or ethnic origin, sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity in its educational programs, admissions policies, employment policies, financial aid, or other school administered programs. This policy is enforced by federal law under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the University of Nebraska Board of Regents’ policies.

Note: Some official documents and publications may be required to contain a more detailed explanation of Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity policies and regulations.  Please contact the AA/EEO office for information.

When handling the shorter affirmative action statement, it should be placed in a manner that does not overpower the official University of Nebraska logo.
