Diversity and inclusion drive innovation. Florida Institute of Technology believes in a culture where differences are valued, we encourage and support the diverse approach of our employees and students. We are committed to building and sustaining a diverse academic and work environment in which students and employees from different backgrounds are included and respected as they learn, teach, and work.
Florida Tech is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer committed to excellence through diversity. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, or protected veteran status and will not be discriminated against based on disability. The university seeks to promote campus diversity by employing a larger number of minorities and women where these groups have historically been and continue to be under-represented within the university in relation to availability. As a result, the university may extend preference in initial employment to such individuals among substantially equally qualified candidates, as well as to veterans. Only persons authorized to work in the United States will be hired at Florida Tech.
The purpose of this policy is to provide diversity and equality to all employees and perspective employees, regardless of their race, sex, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, age, genetic information, disability, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or any other classification protected by applicable discrimination laws. We oppose all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination.
All employees will be treated fairly, equally and with respect. All employees will be provided with training and development opportunities and encouraged to develop to their full potential.
Florida Institute of Technology ensures that all employment decisions are based only on valid job requirements. Selection for employment, promotion, training or any other benefit will be based on aptitude and ability.
This policy relates to academics, employment practices, activities and programs provided by the University.
This policy will be implemented within the framework of the relevant legislation, which includes:
A policy is not required by law; however, it is illegal to discriminate in employment, so a policy is a reflection of our goals and attitude towards diversity and equality and how we intend to fulfill the goals and legal obligations.
