Recruitment Policy

University of Nebraska at Kearney - October 1996

The University of Nebraska at Kearney is committed to the academic value of a diverse university community. A quality university experience must provide students with opportunities to have contact with the broadest possible range of people and cultures. Additionally, we believe that recruitment and retention of a diverse work force will enhance both the recruitment and retention of a diverse student body.

To this end, the University of Nebraska at Kearney, utilizing the Recruitment and Hiring Guidelines, will make specific good faith efforts to recruit, hire, and retain a diverse work force. The Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Director and University administrators will develop implementation strategies and monitor recruitment efforts for inclusion of minorities and women in applicant and interview pools in areas where evidence of underutilization exists as identified by the University of Nebraska at Kearney Affirmative Action Plan.
