New Jersey City University is committed to ensuring that all its educational programs (including recruitment, admission, and retention of students), personnel actions (including application, hiring, promotion, compensation, benefits, transfers, layoffs, training, and tuition assistance), and its social and recreational programs are administered according to the principle of affirmative action and in compliance with relevant federal and state civil rights legislation.

The University community consists of a diverse population of men and women who represent various racial, ethnic, and economic backgrounds. The University continues to strive to maintain and extend that diversity not only to comply with the law but also to provide an educationally desirable environment.

The University has adopted the policies and reporting procedures on non-discrimination and affirmative action to assist the University in fulfilling its educational mission, meet its ethical and legal obligations, and foster a productive environment for learning, teaching, scholarship, work, and community service.

Questions or complaints from students with regard to these policies should be directed to the Office of the Dean of Students, 201-200-3525. Questions or complaints from other members of the University community should be directed to the Office of Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action (EEO/AA), Hepburn 306, 201-200-3075.
