Affirmative Action

JSU is a federal contractor and is committed to a program of affirmative action in maintaining and promoting non-discrimination in all aspects of recruitment, employment, and retention of individuals at all levels throughout the university. It is specifically the intent of the university to recruit, hire, and promote all employees without regard to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status. JSU prohibits retaliation of any form against an employee or student who has filed a discrimination complaint. 

For each employment and promotion opportunity, JSU actively sees women, minorities, veterans, and persons with disabilities to maintain a University community which is based on equal opportunity, reflects the diversity of the American society, and improves opportunities for women, minorities, veterans, and persons with disabilities.
