West Texas A&M University is dedicated to providing a learning and working environment that is free of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation for all employees, students, and visitors. Our commitment to equal employment opportunity, program accessibility, and affirmative action must occur in all aspects of our daily operations and everyone must take responsibility for creating an atmosphere that values diversity and promotes inclusion, fairness and respect. As a part of the Texas A&M System, WTAMU follows System policy 08.01 which states: The system will provide equal opportunity for employment to all persons regardless of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, veteran status, sexual orientation or gender identity and will strive to achieve full and equal employment opportunity throughout the system.
There are several training courses available through HR Connect to enhance our understanding of the laws and responses to workplace issues. Also, The Texas A&M University System Policies and Regulations, http://www.tamus.edu/offices/policy/policies/, provide important information in addressing issues encountered at the workplace. I strongly encourage you to utilize these resources and continue making West Texas A&M University a wonderful and enjoyable place to work.
If you have any questions relating to equal employment opportunity or affirmative action, please contact Harvey Hudspeth, Director of Human Services, at 651-2116 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
