Reaffirmation of Commitment to Diversity/Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action

The City University of New York (CUNY) has a long-standing commitment to diversity and equal opportunity in all aspects of employment practices. At City College, I fully support the policies and practices that we have implemented to foster non-discrimination, affirmative action, and diversity and inclusion in the workplace. It is my personal belief that City College is enriched by the strengths of the people and perspectives represented here.

Accordingly, I am committed to ensuring City College's compliance with CUNY's Policies and Procedures on Equal Opportunity, Non-Discrimination, and on Sexual Misconduct.

The Equal Opportunity and Non-Discrimination Policy states CUNY's commitment to recruit, employ, retain, promote, and provide benefits to employees regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, ethnicity, ancestry, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, marital status, partnership status, disability, genetic information, alienage, citizenship, military or veteran status, unemployment status, pregnancy, or status as a victim of domestic violence/stalking/sex offenses, or any other legally prohibited basis in accordance with federal, state and city laws. Additionally, as a federal contractor, CUNY engages in affirmative action consistent with federal requirements. I invite you to visit our website, and to view the Equal Opportunity and Non-Discrimination Policy and the Sexual Misconduct Policy in their entirety, including the complaint procedures and prohibition against retaliation.

I have assigned the responsibility for the implementation and monitoring of our compliance program to the Interim Chief Diversity Officer, Diana Cuozzo who will also serve as the 504/ADA Coordinator. The vice presidents, deans, directors, managers and supervisors share responsibility for ensuring our compliance with these policies and laws. The Office of Diversity and Compliance is located in Shepard Hall, Room 109A-D and the telephone number is 212-650-7331. Additionally, any individual who believes that he or she has experienced employment discrimination should immediately contact the Office of Diversity and Compliance.

I ask for your continued support to ensure equal opportunity, affirmative action, and diversity and inclusion in all employment practices at City College.
