Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action

Northern California University is an equal opportunity and affirmative action institution committed to the principle that access to study and employment opportunities afforded by the university, including all benefits and privileges, be accorded to each person - student, faculty, or staff member - on the basis of individual merit and without regard to race, color, religion, creed, national origin, ancestry, veteran status, disability, sexual orientation, gender, physical or mental disability, or age.

Northern California University is committed to and reaffirms its support of equal opportunity in employment and non-discrimination in employment policies, practices, and procedures. The University will examine periodically all employment policies for discrimination and take remedial action if such discrimination is found to exist. NCalU maintains a continuing affirmative action program to promote equal opportunity and to identify and eliminate discriminatory practices in every phase of university operations. Furthermore, affirmative action is taken to ensure that opportunities afforded by the university are fully available to those with disabilities, women, disabled and Vietnam veterans, and minorities. The University makes every reasonable accommodation to enable students or employees with disabilities to undertake work or study for which they qualify.

Equal opportunity/affirmative action efforts are the responsibility of all members of the university community. Performance evaluation of administrators will include an assessment of attention to and support of affirmative action. Managers and supervisory staff share responsibility for implementing AA/EO policy and are evaluated on the basis of their performance with respect to these important institutional policies and principles.
