Diversity & Affirmative Action

Human Resources provides resources, programs, and materials that foster and nurture a diverse faculty and staff. 

Here are a few things we do:

  • Provide guidance in Eastern’s hiring activities to meet affirmative action goals.
  • Monitor recruitment to ensure compliance with policies and procedures, federal and state laws and collective bargaining agreements.
  • Investigate complaints of discrimination filed against employees.
  • Ensure HR vendors reflect the diversity of EMU and the community.
  • Conduct trainings and workshops on affirmative action, equal opportunity employment and diversity issues as well as discrimination, harassment and fair employment practices.
  • Monitor pending state and federal legislation and policy developments related to affirmative action and EEO and participate in related hearings.
  • Prepare an annual affirmative action plan.
  • Participate on various university and community committees and organizations representing EMU.
