Compliance with Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) and Affirmative Action Principles

Employment professionals will comply with EEO and Affirmative Action principles in recruiting activities in a manner that includes the following:

  • Recruiting, interviewing, and hiring individuals without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, or disability, and providing reasonable accommodations upon request.
  • Reviewing selection criteria for adverse impact based upon the student’s race, color, national origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.
  • Avoiding use of inquiries that are considered unacceptable by EEO standards during the recruiting process.
  • Developing a sensitivity to, and awareness of, cultural differences and the diversity of the work force.
  • Informing campus constituencies of special activities that have been developed to achieve the employer’s affirmative action goals.
  • Investigating complaints forwarded by the career services office regarding EEO noncompliance and seeking resolution of such complaints.

On-campus interviewing and job offers

Generally, interview activity organized through our office must take place on campus and in person. We reserve the right to suspend employers who cancel recruiting commitments (information sessions, interview schedules, etc.) with our office more than two (2) times in span of one (1) year. Exceptions and appeals for reinstatement will be considered at the discretion of the Senior Associate Director for Employer Relations.

We recommend giving students at least four weeks from the date of the written offer to make their decision. If you make offers at the end of the summer to interns returning for their senior year, we ask that you give them until December 1st, so that these students may participate in on-campus recruiting. For offers made after March 1, please allow at least two weeks from the date of your written offer. Students are urged to immediately release offers they do not plan to accept. Reneging on offers is considered a serious breach of our recruiting policies. Such action receives immediate attention.

Any recruiter who violates any of these policies will have their recruiting and job posting privileges reviewed for potential revocation by the Walter Center for Career Achievement.
