  • Equal Employment Opportunity

    Statement of the Chancellor

    The Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center recognizes its legal and moral obligations to guarantee equal employment opportunity to all persons in all segments of University life. We also recognize the historical denial of equal opportunity to certain segments of our population. We are, therefore, committed to providing equal opportunity at the Health Sciences Center to fulfill our legal and moral obligations.

    It is with a genuine concern for all the people that we publicly express our commitment to equal employment opportunity and affirmative action. This commitment includes not only providing equity in our present employment practices, but also a commitment to the removal of past barriers that hinder equal employment opportunities.

    The Health Sciences Center is committed to this policy because it is our belief that it is morally right, it is good personnel management, and it is legally required by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, by Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972, Executive Order Number 11246, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act or 1974, Governor Edwin Edwards’ Executive Order Number 13, and Louisiana Fair Employment Practices Act.

    Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center will take affirmative action to insure that the following will be implemented at all levels of administration:
    1.Base employment decisions so as to further the principles of equal employment opportunity;
    2.Ensure that all personnel actions, such as, compensation, tenure, benefits, transfers, layoffs, recall from layoffs, education, tuition assistance, social and recreation programs be administered without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, handicap/veteran status, or any other non-merit factor.

    Basic guidelines and methods of achieving the goal of equal employment opportunity will be set forth in Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center’s Affirmative Action Program.

    Overall responsibility for the reaffirmation of policy and program is the responsibility of the Chancellor’s Office.

    Implementation of the program coordination and monitoring to ensure compliance is the responsibility of the Department of Human Resource Management.

    Any persons having questions regarding this program should contact the Director of Human Resource Management or the Sr. Employee Relations Consultant (504-568-4832).

    Therefore, in keeping with application of federal and state laws and regulation, we at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center commit ourselves to this Affirmative Action Plan that is designed to demonstrate our good faith to successfully achieve, for academic and non-academic staff, the goal of equal employment opportunity.

Please reference in your cover letter when
