Eastern Washington University is committed to equal opportunity, fair treatment, and taking affirmative action to increase the number and retention of students and employees from historically underrepresented groups. The University maintains an affirmative action program in support of federal and state requirements.

The University is committed to ensuring equal opportunity/equal access to employment, public accommodations, programs, services, activities, and facilities at Eastern Washington University, without regard to an individual's race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, sex, marital status, age, disability, or status as a disabled veteran or Vietnam era veteran.

Equal Opportunity Training

Training is available for members of the university community in groups of nearly any size. General topics for training include:

   Equal Opportunity / Civil Rights Act
   Affirmative Action
   Disabilities / Americans with Disabilities Act
   Discrimination
   Diversity

If you would like to request training on these or related topics, please email Gayla Thomas with your request. 
 


The mandate for equal opportunity doesn't dictate disregard for the differences in candidates' qualities and skills. There is no constitutional right to play ball. All there is is a right to compete for it on equal terms.
