Affirmative Action

These policies do not relate to admissions policies.

As a federal contractor, each campus within the Purdue University system is required to develop and maintain a written affirmative action program, which is a set of specific results-oriented actions and procedures to which the University commits itself. The current year Affirmative Action Plans for the West Lafayette campus are available below. Adobe Acrobat Reader required to view. Download the reader for free.

In order to accurately report whether our University is meeting its affirmative action goal, all employees are asked to ensure their demographic information is up to date. Most information, such as race, ethnicity, gender, and status as a veteran can be updated in SuccessFactors. The form that is used to disclose or update your disability status can be accessed by clicking the "Disclose Disability Status" button on the left.

Clicking "Disclose Disability Status" will not require you to disclose specific details about your condition. You will simply be asked to identify whether you are an individual with a disability or a history thereof. You may also decline to answer.
