Affirmative Action

New Mexico State University is dedicated to providing equal employment opportunities in all areas of occupation without regard to age, ancestry, color, mental or physical disability, gender, serious medical condition, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, spousal affiliation, or veteran status, according to state and federal laws. This dedication extends to recruiting and hiring, promotion, and other personnel actions such as compensation, benefits, transfers, layoffs, terminations, training, education, tuition assistance, social and recreational programs. NMSU’s comprehensive affirmative action program supports this effort. With the commitment of us all, we will continue to make progress toward the university’s goal of including qualified minorities, women and persons with disabilities at every level of responsibility and endeavor in the university.
