Accommodation Request Processes



Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) is defined by the federal government to refer to employment practices that ensure non-discrimination based on race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical or mental ability, religion, medical condition, ancestry, marital status, pregnancy, genetic information, veteran status or age. The principle behind EEO is that each individual should have the same access to opportunities in the workplace.

  • EEO provides equal access and opportunity, ensuring no one is excluded from participation.

Affirmative Action (AA) is one aspect of the federal government's efforts to ensure equal employment opportunity for minorities, women, veterans and individuals with disabilities. Affirmative Action encompasses:

  • Good faith efforts to remedy underutilization,
  • Widespread and diverse outreach in the recruitment process,
  • Job-related criteria with minimal adverse or exclusionary impact, and
  • Fair evaluation of all job applicants.

Ensuring EEO and AA are legally mandated for The University of Toledo because of the University's status as a federal contractor.
