University of California, San Diego

February 27, 1996
SUBJECT: Reaffirmation of University of California, San Diego's
Equal Employment Opportunity Policy
I am taking this opportunity to reaffirm UCSD's commitment to equal employment opportunity and affirmative action. UCSD's policy governing nondiscrimination in employment requires us to assure that all personnel actions, including recruitment, hiring, promotion, transfer, training, career development, layoff and termination of both faculty and staff at the University are made in a fair and impartial manner. Please refer to the attached Nondiscrimination Statement for a summary of governing regulations and faculty/staff grievance policies. I strongly support this policy and reaffirm that fair employment practices will be implemented throughout all human resources activities at UCSD.
This year the Staff Affirmative Action Vice Chancellor Working Group, which has a representative from each Vice Chancellor/Director area, has met on an ngoing basis to develop action plans and to ensure that the nondiscrimination policy is disseminated to UCSD employees. These action plans, incorporated in the Staff Affirmative Action Plan, will be published in the Spring of 1996.
Relevant policies, such as the equal employment opportunity policy, and affirmative action programs, will continue to be discussed in the Supervisory Training Laboratory and the New Employee Orientation sessions. Furthermore, UCSD will continue to distribute its nondiscrimination statement widely to all recruitment sources.
While all managers and supervisors are responsible for implementing the Affirmative Action Plan, responsibility for overseeing the implementation of staff and academic Affirmative Action Plans, including program accessibility for persons with disabilities, has been assigned as follows:

If the UCSD equal employment opportunity and affirmative action program is to be a success, it will require ongoing commitment on the part of everyone. Please join me in supporting our commitment to equal employment opportunity and affirmative action at UCSD.
