Affirmative Action

A Place for Everyone

Eastern Oregon University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer and educator, committed to building a diverse and inclusive community and learning environment.   This commitment is best evidenced by a diverse population of students, faculty, staff, and alumni. To that end, the University welcomes nominations of and applications from women and members of historically underrepresented minority groups, as well as others who would bring additional dimensions to the University’s culture, teaching and outreach missions.   Encouraging diversity, however, is about much more than the social justice imperative of ensuring equal opportunity, of leveling the playing field. It’s about embracing the richness and possibilities of diverse thought arising from differences of culture and circumstance. It’s about seeing diversity as a strength, as a competitive advantage, and a moral imperative. It’s about shaping the culture and the workforce of the University to be more reflective of the diverse world our students encounter. In the end, it’s about excellence.
