ALL AT UCSD SUBJECT: Reaffirmation of University of California, San Diego's Equal
Employment Opportunity Policy
I am taking this opportunity to reaffirm UCSD's commitment to affirmative action and equal employment opportunity. Our policy governing nondiscrimination in employment, as explained on the Attachment, requires that we assure all employment actions, including recruitment, training, hiring, layoff, promotion, transfer, and career development for all faculty and staff employees at the University are made in a fair and impartial manner. (Please refer to the attached Nondiscrimination Statement for a summary of applicable governing regulations and faculty/staff grievance policies). I strongly support this policy and reaffirm that fair employment practices will be implemented throughout all personnel activities at UCSD.
This year, meetings will be conducted with the Vice Chancellors and Medical Center Director to explain this policy. A representative from each Vice Chancellor Unit will work with staff members in that unit to devise a
plan of action, which will be approved by the Staff Affirmative Action (SAA) Office, to disseminate and discuss the policy with employees in that unit. Action plans will be completed by January 1995.
EEO policy will continue to be included in the annual abbreviated version of the Staff Affirmative Action Plan, which is distributed to managers and supervisors. EEO policy will continue to be discussed in all affirmative action presentations in the Supervisory Training Laboratory, and a presentation
on EEO policy will continue to be included in monthly New Employee Orientation sessions. Finally, policy statements will continue to be disseminated to all recruitment sources on an annual basis.
Responsibility for implementing staff and academic Affirmative Action Plans, including program accessibility for persons with disabilities, has been assigned as follows:

require commitment on the part of everyone involved. Please join me in reaffirming our commitment to equal employment opportunity and affirmative action at UCSD.
