Why we exist

It is the policy of the University of California to undertake affirmative action, consistent with its obligations as a Federal contractor, for minorities and women, for persons with disabilities and for covered veterans. The University commits itself to apply every good faith effort to achieve prompt and full utilization of minorities and women in all segments of its workforce where deficiencies exist. These efforts conform to all current legal and regulatory requirements and are consistent with University standards of quality and excellence.  

 What we do

The Office Academic Recruitment Services (OARS) is responsible for providing an annual review and update of the UCSD Academic Personnel Affirmative Action Program (AAP). The AAP contains the annual update of the Academic Affirmative Action Program for women, people of color, covered veterans, and people with disabilities, in compliance with applicable federal and state regulations. For a list of EEO Programs, please visit; https://aps.ucsd.edu/recruitment/equal-opportunity-programs/index.html
