Through the Affirmative Action Plan, which is updated annually and posted on the UAS Personnel Services website, the University of Alaska Southeast recognizes its responsibility to provide education and employment opportunities for all qualified individuals. The Director of Personnel Services acts as the Affirmative Action Officer for the campus and is responsible for implementing state and federal laws, orders, decisions, and university policies to prevent illegal discrimination or institutional exclusion.
It is the policy of the University of Alaska Southeast to provide equal education and employment opportunities and to provide service and benefits (such as admission decisions, financial aid, access to academic programs, employment, and health and counseling services) to all students and employees without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, or status as a Vietnam-era or disabled veteran.
If students, prospective students, or employees feel they have been discriminated against, they have the right to contact the appropriate supervisor for assistance and follow the resolution process outlined in University Regulation 04.02.020. They can contact the campus Affirmative Action Officer, Dean of Student Services, or the regional personnel Office. Information is also available from the Alaska State Commission for Human Rights, the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, the Department of Labor, or the Office of Civil Rights in the Federal Department of Education.
