Disabled Veterans

Disabled veterans and veterans of the Vietnam era

It is the firm policy of Western Michigan University to offer equal employment opportunity for all and to employ, advance in employment, and otherwise treat qualified disabled veterans and veterans of the Vietnam Era without discrimination based upon their disability or veteran status in all employment practices including recruitment, hiring, training, promotion, transfer, demotion, layoff, termination, and compensation.

The University shall ensure that required qualifications are job related and/or consistent with business necessity and/or the safe performance of the task. Further, the University shall endeavor to make reasonable accommodations for handicapping conditions of qualified disabled and/or Vietnam era veterans who have mental and physical limitations.

Western Michigan University is guided by an Affirmative Action Program devoted to the elimination of discrimination and the removal of barriers that create and perpetuate inequity. The University will continue to pursue the elimination of inequity wherever it exists. Every member of the campus community is expected to share in this commitment in accomplishing our goal.
