Equal Employment Opportunity

SUNY Canton, as a constituent of the State University of New York system, endorses and adheres to the State University Board of Trustees’ policy on Equal Employment Opportunity adopted on June 30, 1971. It is the policy of SUNY Canton to provide equal opportunity in all aspects of employment and personnel administration and to prohibit discrimination.

This policy governs all campus employment policies and practices including, but not limited to, recruitment, selection, compensation, promotions, appointments, terminations, layoffs, retrenchments, leaves of absence, training, and all other employee benefits. Protection of equal opportunity to student employees is also extended through this policy.

It is the college's policy to take affirmative action to recruit, employ, and promote qualified members of protected groups and to find and correct any discriminatory policies, practices or conditions within the college community. SUNY Canton affirms the intent to take appropriate action in the event that any applicable federal or state law or regulation is violated, or the implementation of this policy is willfully or habitually impeded.
