It is the policy of Buffalo State to provide equal employment and educational opportunities to all and to ensure that no discrimination occurs against any employee or students. The policy includes all aspects of recruitment, hiring, training, promotions, and all other terms and conditions of employment as well as admissions, access to programs, and all other services and privileges of student status.
The State University College at Buffalo (Buffalo State) is an institution where women, members of historically underrepresented groups, persons with disabilities, and any other protected group should feel welcomed, challenged, and respected, and where the human values underlying this policy are transmitted to our students, both in and outside the classroom. (Policy: VI: 01:00, Directory of Policy Statements. Rev. November 1987)
This institution subscribes to all applicants, students, or employees on the basis of race, sex, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, age, handicap, marital or veteran status, and arrest and/or conviction record.
Affirmative Action will be taken to ensure that traditionally disadvantaged, protected classes of employees and students are given an equitable opportunity for progress.
President of the College, President’s Council on Equity and Campus Diversity, Chief Diversity Officer
