Equal Opportunity & SACS Statements

Pursuant to federal law, Jacksonville State University (JSU) is required to state its commitment to equal opportunity and affirmative action in all recruiting announcements and advertisements.  This requirement applies university-wide to all departments and divisions.

JSU’s SACSOC/EOE Statement must appear on all print and online versions of university publications that are made available to students, employees, applicants, program participants and the general public.  The statement should be positioned in a prominent location—usually near the front or back cover of a document, or immediately before or after an ad.  For publications that invite participation or attendance at an event, additional information regarding disability accommodations should also be included. 

Here are some examples of publications that must contain the statement:

  1. Applications
  2. Brochures
  3. Handbooks
  4. Job postings
  5. Magazines
  6. Newsletters
  7. Posters
  8. Stationery
  9. Contracts for goods and services
