Goal of UB Affirmative Action Searches

The goal of an affirmative action search is to increase the number of individuals of protected groups in areas where they are underrepresented and on the campus at large. In units with a predominance of one protected group, affirmative action searches should be directed toward the other protected groups. These efforts must supplement the traditional procedures of advertising through newspapers, professional journals, conferences, and form announcements.

An Affirmative Action Search Should Demonstrate:


that extraordinary efforts have been made to identify and recruit members of protected groups,


a positive correlation between the availability pool and the applicant pool and a positive correlation between the availability pool and the seriously considered candidates,


that all employment decisions are based on objective standards/criteria and the furtherance of equal opportunity and affirmative action for protected group members.

The University's promotion policy for professional staff employees will be consistent with the University's Affirmative Action Policy.

These affirmative action guidelines are in accordance with Federal and State statutes and regulations and with the Policies of the Board of Trustees of the State University of New York.
