Policies

Equal Opportunity Employer

The Utah State University Research Foundation is deeply committed to providing an equal opportunity climate and an environment free from discrimination and harassment. In accordance with established laws, the Research Foundation prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran's status, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

Affirmative Action

Affirmative Action is designed to redress imbalances of minorities and women in the workforce. U.S. Presidential Executive Order 11246 (as amended) requires federal contractors to take "affirmative" steps to recruit, hire, and advance minorities and women when they are underrepresented in the Research Foundation and are qualified and available in the labor force. The Research Foundation proactively undertakes good faith efforts to reach affirmative action goals.

The Research Foundation abides by the requirements of the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act 41 CFR 60-300.5(a) and Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 41 CFR 60-741.5(a). These regulations prohibit discrimination against qualified individuals on the basis of protected veteran status or disability, and require affirmative action by covered prime contractors and subcontractors to employ and advance in employment qualified protected veterans and individuals with disabilities. The Research Foundation is committed to affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified protected veterans and individuals with disabilities.

Employees with Disabilities

Utah State University Research Foundation is committed to equal opportunity and non-discrimination as outlined by section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Research Foundation ensures full right of access for persons with disabilities to all terms and conditions of employment, services, programs, and activities. The Research Foundation ensures that its personnel processes do not limit, segregate, or classify an employee or job applicant in a way that adversely affects employment opportunities or status on the basis of disability. Employees and candidates for employment will be treated on the basis of their ability to perform essential job functions, with or without reasonable accommodations.
