Affirmative Action

"Affirmative Action" was first used in its contemporary sense by former President John F. Kennedy to ensure that government contractors "take affirmative action to ensure that applicants are employed, and employees are treated during employment, without regard to their race, creed, color, or nation origin."  The intent was to create equal opportunities for all qualified persons.

Eastern Kentucky University's Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) is available for review in the  Office of Institutional Equity . Please contact us at 859-622-8020 if you have any questions or if you wish to review it.

Eastern Kentucky University's Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action and Veteran's statemens (separate from the AAP) can be found at the bottom of every EKU website by clicking on the "EO/AA Statement" link.
