Affirmative Action Program

In accordance with Executive Order 11246, Vanderbilt’s Affirmative Action Program establishes the University’s plans to overcome the underutilization of women and minorities, and to enhance the employment and promotional opportunities for veterans and people with disabilities. Such plans ensure that all qualified applicants and employees are receiving an equal opportunity for recruitment, selection, advancement and every other term and privilege associated with employment.

The plan is compiled by the staff of the Equal Opportunity and Access Office. Vanderbilt’s affirmative action year runs from October 1 to September 30 of the following year. The plan is revised on an annual basis. The comprehensive plan includes all the statistical reports and an in-depth discussion of each section.

The Affirmative Action Program is available for inspection to any employee or applicant for employment, Monday through Friday during the normal business hours at the Equal Opportunity and Access Office.
