Affirmative Action Plan
The University of Minnesota prepares an annual Affirmative Action Plan in accordance with state and federal law and reports this information to state and federal agencies as appropriate. The University’s Affirmative Action Plan can be accessed, pursuant to applicable law, by contacting the University’s Equal Opportunity & Title IX Office during normal business hours. Additional student and employee data by gender, race and ethnicity is available on the website of the University’s Office of Institutional Research.
EEO Affirmative Action Goals can be found in MyU/Reporting Center/Human Resources/Workforce Analysis/EOAA.
The University invites all employees to self-identify their race and ethnicity, disability status, and veteran status through the MyU portal, which then records the information in the University's Human Resources (HR) data system. Self identification is voluntary and refusal to self-identify will not result in adverse treatment. The University keeps identification information provided confidential and uses this information to comply with legal record-keeping and reporting requirements.
This information also helps the University assess and improve its affirmative action efforts, including in recruitment, hiring, retention, and other personnel processes.
To self-identify your race and ethnicity, please: visit MyU; click on the “My Info” tab; click on the “Ethnicity” link; select the appropriate race and ethnicity categories. The race and ethnicity categories available for selection on MyU have been provided by the federal government.
To self-identify as being an employee with a disability, please: visit MyU; click on the “My Info” tab; click on the “More Personal Information” link; click on the “Change Disability” link; select the appropriate button. Please note that an employee’s self-identification through MyU is not shared with the campus disability resources office and does not constitute registering with the campus disability resources office. In addition, an employee who is registered with the campus disability resources office is not automatically identified as having a disability in the MyU/HR data system. Therefore, we encourage you to self-identify as a person with a disability in MyU whether or not you have registered with the campus disability resources office. If you would like to learn about disability accommodations, please contact the campus disability resources office, regardless of whether you choose to identify as having a disability in the MyU system.
To self-identify as a protected veteran employee, please: visit MyU; click on the “My Info” tab; click on the “More Personal Information” link; click on the “Change Veteran Status” link; select the appropriate button. Please note that not all employees who identify as a veteran are counted in the University’s “Protected Veteran” numbers. The definition of “Protected Veteran” has been provided by the federal government.
Please contact your Human Resources representative or Equal Opportunity & TItle IX for questions about self-identification.
