Affirmative Action

Florida State University (University or FSU) is committed to the practice of equal opportunity and affirmative action in all aspects of employment. As a federal government contractor, FSU is required to provide equal employment opportunities to qualified minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and protected veterans. The University's Affirmative Action Plan (AAP), as required by the federal government, acts as an audit tool to help identify areas of underutilization for these groups. If it is determined that FSU's workforce does not adequately reflect the available labor market in a job group, a placement goal is set to promote movement towards adequate representation.

Affirmative action placement goals enable the University to develop action-oriented steps in a good-faith effort to correct any areas where underutilization that may exist. These placement goals are not quotas or set-asides for specific groups. Rather, they represent areas where targeted efforts should be made to attract and retain underrepresented groups in the available labor market.

The University's Affirmative Action Plan is available for inspection Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the Human Resources Office of Equal Opportunity Compliance and Engagement Office, 6200 University Center, Building A, Tallahassee, FL 32306-2410.
