Employment & Recruitment
Miami University strives to be an employer of choice. In order to reach and maintain this goal, everyone involved in the hiring process must be actively engaged in and committed to recruiting, hiring, and retaining a diverse faculty and staff of qualified, talented and enthusiastic individuals, while ensuring compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
The Office of Equity & Equal Opportunity is just one of the many departments that serve as resources for assisting hiring managers and search committees.
Miami University Policy & Information Manual, Section 3.6A:
Respect for human diversity is an essential element of the Miami University community.
Miami University strongly opposes and will not tolerate harassment or discrimination on the basis of sex (including sexual harassment, sexual violence, or sexual misconduct), race, color, religion, national origin, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, pregnancy, military status, or veteran status. This prohibition extends to harassment or discrimination, based on the protected status listed above, including the creation of an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working, educational, or living environment. This policy also prohibits discrimination in employment based on genetic information as prohibited by the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA).
Harassment and discrimination are also illegal. This policy is not intended to impair or limit the right of anyone to seek a remedy available under state or federal law. Legal remedies may be pursued outside Miami University by contacting the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Ohio Civil Rights Commission, the United States Department of Education Office for Civil Rights, or by consulting an attorney at the person’s own expense. Under the law, there are various time limits for filing charges outside the University. Persons should contact the agencies listed above or an attorney to determine the applicable time limits.
This policy may in some respects exceed the requirements of applicable law. However, this policy will not be enforced so as to infringe upon First Amendment rights, including the right to academic freedom.
