In order to fill positions authorized in the university’s annual budget and deemed essential to the successful day-to-day operation of the university and its basic educational mission, Elon will always attempt to hire the best qualified applicant to fill a position.

It is the policy of the university to provide equal employment opportunity on the basis of merit and without discrimination due to race, color, religion, sex, age, national or ethnic origin, veteran status or disability. The university is prepared to make reasonable accommodations for qualified persons with disabilities. This policy of equal employment opportunity applies to everyone, in every aspect of employment policy and practice, and in all campus locations where the university has employment responsibility. Any person associated with the university who fails to comply fully with this policy will be properly disciplined. Any employment agency used by the university will be informed of this policy.

This policy applies to, but is not limited to, recruitment, employment, promotion, demotion, transfer, position advertising, reduction in force, termination, rates of pay, and selection for training. The university supports promotions from within the employee group whenever possible based on the qualifications of the applicant.

Elon University assures in all solicitation or advertisements placed by or on behalf of the university that it is an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer. Copies of all advertisements will be kept on file.

Employee complaints of discrimination under this policy may be submitted to the office of human resources. Such complaints in no way will adversely affect an employee’s treatment on the job.
