9.1 Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity

Policy

Florida Institute of Technology is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. As evidence of its commitment to the principles of equal opportunity and affirmative action, the following policy has been established:

The university is committed to compliance with all applicable laws regarding nondiscrimination. Furthermore, it shall strive to build a diverse community in which opportunity is equal to all persons regardless of race, sex, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, age, genetic information, disability, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or any other classification protected by applicable discrimination laws. It shall exert its leadership for the achievement of this goal by all parties, students or employees of the university.

Further, the university, through its employment practices and procedures, seeks and employs qualified staff for all its diverse activities and at all of its facilities. It further believes that employment decisions should be based on an individual’s abilities and qualifications, and should not be based on irrelevant factors or personal characteristics that have no connection with job performance. Therefore, the university provides equal opportunities during employment by administering each and every phase of its personnel program without regard to race, sex, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, age, genetic information, disability, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or any other classification protected by applicable discrimination laws.

Procedure

If you feel that the university has discriminated against you during its employment process, please contact the Associate Vice President of Human Resources (321) 674-8100.
