Affirmative Action Policy
These policies and procedures apply to Webster University students enrolled at extended campuses in the United States.
Webster University is committed to a policy of affirmative action, in compliance with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as amended concerning equal employment practices and equal educational opportunities, without regard to race, sex, sexual orientation, color, creed, age, ethnic or national origin, or nondisqualifying handicap. The University is committed to do more than ensure employment neutrality; it is committed to make additional efforts to recruit, employ, and promote minorities and women. Decisions on employment and promotion are made on the basis of the qualifications and competencies of the individuals as they relate to the requirements of the position for which they are being considered.
All personnel policies—including those on compensation, fringe benefits, transfers, and training programs—are administered without regard to race, sex, sexual orientation, color, creed, age, ethnic or national origin, or nondisqualifying disability, in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The policy of affirmative action applies to employees in academic and nonacademic departments, educational programs, and all other activities of the University. The University will ensure that all agencies with major contracted services with the University have on file and adhere to affirmative action policies. The President shall distribute to all employees a copy of the Affirmative Action Program at Webster University.
