Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is committed to equal opportunity to all individuals regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender and/or gender identity expression, marital or parental status, national origin, ethnicity, citizenship status, veteran or military status, age, disability and any other legally protected basis. Harassment or discrimination based upon protected status is illegal and will not be tolerated. This policy is applicable to employment practices and all programs within the University. This commitment to all employment and educational practices includes, but is not limited to recruitment and hiring, training, compensation, benefits, promotions, transfers, terminations, layoffs, access to facilities as well as social and recreational programs.

The University's compliance with this statement is the responsibility of all administrators and others whose duties are related to decisions regarding employees. Further, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is committed to fully participate in the implementation of all applicable federal and state laws, executive orders, rules, regulations and policies.


The Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity initiative that the University of Wisconsin Green Bay supports relies on a number of different policies, and this page briefly states them and their general purpose within Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity.

A copy of the Affirmative Action Program is available to the public for general inspection, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. in the Human Resources Office, and in the Cofrin Library Archives, room 705 (please visit the Archives website to check their hours).
