The University of Oregon maintains an Affirmative Action Program for women, minorities, veterans, and individuals with disabilities, providing annual updates on these efforts through its Affirmative Action Plan (AAP). The plan is centered on analysis of employee data as of February 28 of the plan year and is typically publicly available within 90-120 days of that date. As the plan is prepared and throughout the year the university's Affirmative Action Program is active and focused on maintaining compliance with our Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action obligations.
The UO’s overall Affirmative Action Program:

The results of these efforts are incorporated into the following annual written affirmative action plan:
