Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action

The university will recruit and employ qualified personnel and will provide equal opportunities during employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, age, genetic information, disability status, protected veteran status or any other characteristic protected by law.

Where the affirmative action is found to be deficient, MU will undertake necessary steps to bring the program into compliance.
