Tufts University Equal Opportunity Policy Statement.
Tufts Univ., Medford, MA.
This document contains Tufts University's Equal Opportunity Policy Statement and outlines the goals and methods of attainment of the Affirmative Action Program. The policy is one of intent and responsibility and asserts that it is the policy of Tufts that no discrimination on the grounds of race, color, religion, sex, age, or national origin will exist in any area of the University. The Affirmative Action Plan provides for the prompt and impartial consideration of all complaints of discrimination in the University and asserts that in the process of recruitment for and appointment to the work force, no appointment will be made until minority group candidates and women have been sought out and qualified candidates encouraged to apply. For nonacademic personnel, programs are also planned to: (1) alert persons in responsible positions to the problems of minority groups and women; (2) assure that all employees have full opportunity for upward mobility; (3) develop a new procedure for consistent wage administration; and (4) develop clear and definitive statements of policies and procedures. The Plan also has provisions for: (1) construction, vendors, and suppliers; and (2) equal opportunities in education, housing, and community relations. (AF)
