Sec. 7-105. University Policy Regarding Goals.
Aware of its constitutional and statutory obligations to avoid discriminating against any person on the basis of race, sex or national origin, the University will not establish goals which include the establishment of quotas for hiring, placement or promotion, nor will any of the University's goals be administered in a way that illegally discriminates in hiring, appointment or granting tenure to any qualified person on the grounds of race, national origin, sex, or other criteria prohibited by law. Numerical or percentage goals, if any, are to be considered and set only in those circumstances where no other affirmative action can be taken to eliminate the identified problem, and only if such a goal is a reasonable and meaningful remedy for addressing the identified problem. The establishment of any such numerical or percentage goal requires the recommendation of the Director of the Office of Affirmative Action and approval by the President.
