The Office of Diversity Affairs/Equal Employment Opportunity (DA/EEO) encourages a diverse campus community and supports the principles of equal opportunity and diversity in employment and education. We will not discriminate in our employment or recruiting practices on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, veterans status, genetic information, or age (over 40), to ensure compliance with all applicable federal, state, and local laws.
The office develops programs and procedures to promote a culturally diverse and inclusive work and educational environment where faculty, staff, students, and patients are treated fairly and recognized for their individuality. Our commitment to diversity is reinforced through training and education.
DA/EEO is responsible for advancing and monitoring the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) laws that cover Title VII, Equal Pay Act of 1963(EPA), Title 1 of Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), Age Discrimination in Employment Act, ADEA (age over 40), Pregnancy Discrimination Act, and Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) as well as the diversity and inclusion policies, procedures and initiatives of the LSU system.
