Affirmative Action Plan
Statement of Commitment to Affirmative Action by the College President
Minnesota State Community and Technical College is committed to conducting all personnel and educational activities without regard to race, sex, color, creed, religion, age, national origin, marital status, disability, status with regard to public assistance, sexual orientation, or membership or activity in a local commission as defined by law. Personnel activities include but are not limited to: recruitment, selection, placement, employee development, promotion, retention, compensation, leaves of absence, disciplinary action, transfer, demotion, termination and layoffs affecting all employees and job applicants. Minnesota State Community and Technical College will not tolerate discrimination on the basis of these protected class categories in accordance with all state and federal equal opportunity/ affirmative action laws, directives, orders and regulations.
Minnesota State Community and Technical College is committed to implementation of this affirmative action plan and fully supports the State of Minnesota's affirmative action efforts. Minnesota State Community and Technical College will implement and maintain an affirmative action program that takes aggressive measures to eliminate internal barriers to equal opportunity and that strives to remedy the historical under-representation in the employment, retention and promotion of qualified persons with disabilities, persons of color and women. It is Minnesota State Community and Technical College's policy to actively pursue equal employment practices during all phases of the employment process. In that spirit, Minnesota State Community and Technical College will continue to seek opportunities to maximize the selection and retention of protected group employees by:
*continuing to actively and aggressively recruit protected group applicants;
*continuing affirmative action training for employees, with an emphasis on those serving on interview teams; and by
*supporting affirmative measures to retain protected group employees.
