Equal Employment Opportunity / Affirmative Action

In keeping with Haverford College's long-standing policy of non-discrimination, the Board of Managers of Haverford College has established a program of affirmative action. The goal of this program is to attract and retain staff of high quality and diverse backgrounds and to do so without discrimination on the basis of sex, race, color, religion, age, sexual orientation, disability, genetic information, national origin, citizenship, veteran status, or any other protected characteristic. In accordance with the Affirmative Action Policy, the College recruits persons in these protected categories as candidates for Haverford positions that become available. The results of the hiring process are reviewed regularly by the Affirmative Action Officer (AAO) to make certain these goals are being met.
