Audience: All Employees, Staff, Faculty
Tufts University maintains an Affirmative Action Program wherein all managers and officials of the University directly bear the responsibility for making every effort to identify and alleviate underutilization of minorities, women, the disabled, and covered veterans so that they receive fair and equal treatment in all University programs.
Tufts University maintains an internal system of audit and reporting that shall assist in the implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of the Affirmative Action Programs to assure the effectiveness of the plan. Specifically, this system shall facilitate the identification and removal of inequities and deficiencies in employment and those policies and practices that could preclude fair and equal treatment. Tufts University’s Affirmative Action Program provides for the prompt and impartial consideration of all complaints of discrimination filed by its staff, faculty members, and students. Retaliation for filing a complaint is prohibited. (Employee Handbook)
