Equal Opportunity For Employees, Employment Applicants and Third Parties
Executive Order No. 1096 encapsulates the CSU's commitment to maintaining an inclusive community that values diversity and fosters tolerance and mutual respect. It is the CSU policy to provide equal opportunity for all persons regardless of race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, and military or veteran status. This policy prohibits Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation and extends to all employment practices, including recruitment, selection, hiring, promotion, training, compensation, benefits, transfer, separation, and other terms, conditions, or privileges of employment. It also includes full and equal accommodations, advantages, facilities, privileges and services for all members of the campus community, as well as Third Parties.
The CSU provides reasonable accommodation to qualified persons with disabilities unless doing so would impose an undue hardship. Reasonable accommodation is to be determined by the Campus following an interactive process with the person to identify the nature and extent of the restrictions and the appropriate reasonable accommodation.
