Diversity Profile

Commitment to Equal Opportunity: 

CMU, an AA/EO institution, strongly and actively strives to increase diversity and provide equal opportunity within its community. CMU does not discriminate in employment against persons based on age, color, disability, gender, gender identity/gender expression, genetic information, familial status, height, marital status, national origin, political persuasion, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, veteran status, or weight (see https://www.cmich.edu/aaeo).
Affirmative action is a set of specific and results-oriented measures taken to bring about equal opportunity. At CMU, the Office of Civil Rights and Institutional Equity coordinates and monitors the university's affirmative action/equal opportunity efforts and programs to assure compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Executive Order 11246 and other relevant state and federal statutes.
The office supervises the maintenance of related reports and records, provides and develops related educational programs and materials, offers guidance and advice to all community members on the University's nondiscrimination and affirmative action policies and procedures, assists departments with recruitment and retention activities, and receives and resolves complaints of discrimination from students, employees and others.
