Salisbury University values diversity among our students, faculty, and staff and believes that interactions with those holding varying perspectives, backgrounds, and beliefs contribute to a well-rounded educational experience and promotes personal and professional development.

Mr. Humberto Aristizabal
Equal Employment Opportunity “promotes equality of opportunity in the workplace” and the enforcement of federal and state laws prohibiting employment discrimination.
As a student-centered educational institution we are dedicated to recruiting, educating and graduating all members of our diverse student body, and adhere to all federal and state laws.
The Office of Institutional Equity works collaboratively across the University to educate about, and support compliance with, all federal, state, and University System of Marylandlaws, policies and procedures that prohibit discrimination and harassment.
Affirmative Action refers to a good faith effort to analyze our workforce and take positive action aimed at increasing the inclusion of historically excluded groups in employment, education and business. Affirmative Action is not a quota system. It is not designed to offer preferential treatment to, or exclude from participation, any group. To the contrary, Affirmative Action policies are intended to promote access for the traditionally underrepresented through heightened outreach and efforts at inclusion.
The Office of Institutional Equity serves as the Affirmative Action office, working in partnership with the Office of Human Resources to educate and support employees in the search and selection process, and compile applicant and employee data on an annual basis to assist the University in diversifying and retaining a high quality workforce.
