The EEO/AA Office is dedicated to upholding policies and principles relative to equal employment opportunity and assisting North Carolina Central University with providing optimal employment and educational experiences for the campus. The office is also charged with the responsibility of ensuring the University is trained regarding applicable EEO policies and procedures. The office seeks to achieve this endeavor by also providing support for the campus community with developmental and outreach resources, including orientation for all new employees, internal trainings and workshops for all levels of University faculty and staff, and online training modules that reinforce the principles of non-discrimination and diversity. Program objectives are established through the Equal Employment Opportunity Plan and program.
Equal Employment Opportunity
Equal Employment Opportunity Plan
What Is the Plan?
The Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) plan is a comprehensive document that analyzes the University’s relevant labor market data, as well as the University’s employment practices, to identify possible barriers to the participation of women and minorities in all levels of the University’s workforce.
Why Is It Important?
EEO practices are important for both employees and employers. On an individual basis, EEO accomplishes many things. First, EEO helps establish a baseline for acceptable behavior, which is important considering the vast array of lifestyles, values, and attitudes individuals have.
