At The Florida State University, we recognize that every competitive advantage begins with people. By valuing, celebrating and leveraging the differences and similarities of our students, faculty and staff, we inspire an environment of innovation and passion – one that enables us to create a teaching, research and service environment that better reflects the needs of our students, faculty, staff, customers, constituents, communities and other key stakeholders.

Diversity and Inclusion have long been a part of the operating philosophy at the University. In the context of the workplace, valuing diversity means creating a workplace that respects and includes differences, recognizes the unique contributions that individuals with many types of differences can make, and creates a work environment that maximizes the potential of all employees. As a concept, it focuses on a broader set of qualities than race and gender. Inclusion is a practice of ensuring that people in an organization feel they belong, are engaged and are connected through their work to the goals and objectives of the organization.

Now, we are uniting our efforts at FSU to move our Diversity and Inclusion initiative even more to the forefront of our University’s agenda so that we can deliver on our vision to become the university and workplace of choice. Educating employees on how to work effectively in a diverse environment helps the University prevent discrimination and promote inclusiveness. There is evidence that effectively managing a diverse work force can contribute to increased faculty, staff and student retention and productivity. It can enhance the organization’s responsiveness to an increasingly diverse world of customers, improve relations with the surrounding communities, increase the organization’s ability to cope with change, and expand the creativity of the organization.

Florida State University (University or FSU) is committed to the practice of equal opportunity and affirmative action in all aspects of employment. As a federal government contractor, FSU is required to provide equal employment opportunities to qualified minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and protected veterans. The University’s Affirmative Action Plan acts as an audit tool to help identify areas of underutilization for these groups. If it is determined that FSU’s workforce does not adequately reflect the available labor market in a job group, a placement goal is set to promote movement towards adequate representation.

Affirmative action placement goals enable the University to develop action oriented steps in a good-faith effort to correct any areas underutilization that may exist. These placement goals are not quotas or set-asides for specific groups. Rather, they represent areas where targeted efforts should be made to attract and retain underrepresented groups in the available labor market.
