Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO)/Affirmative Action

Understanding Equality: The Past, Present, and Future

As leaders of the LSU and SU AgCenters, we are fully committed to ensuring civil rights and equal opportunity for employees, applicants for employment, and beneficiaries of Extension and Research programs and services without regard to race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, or disability. Our civil rights policies entitle every customer and colleague to be treated with fairness, equality, and respect, prohibiting discrimination in all aspects of human resources policies, practices, and operations.

Faculty and staff have both an ethical and a legal responsibility to take personal responsibility for ensuring that civil rights are protected, laws are enforced, and discrimination in any form is prevented.

With your help and commitment, we can achieve AgCenters of excellence. Our vision is for our organizations to be workplaces of integrity, providing quality research, programs and services to all people.
