Required Notices & Statements
Pursuant to several federal laws and regulations, UND is required to post certain notices and include statements in publications about UND's nondiscrimination and equal opportunity policies.
Notice of Nondiscrimination
The University of North Dakota (UND) is committed to the principle of equal opportunity in education and employment. UND does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, creed, marital status, veteran's status, political belief or affiliation or any other status protected by law. Pursuant to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, UND does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs and activities, employment and admission. UND will promptly and equitably investigate reports of discrimination or harassment and take disciplinary action as appropriate.
Retaliation in any form against a person who reports discrimination or participates in the investigation of discrimination is strictly prohibited and will be grounds for separate disciplinary action.
The University’s policies and procedures for complaints of discrimination or harassment are found at:

EEO Policy Statement
It is the policy of the University of North Dakota that no person in the United States shall be discriminated against because of race, religion, age, color, gender, disability, national origin, creed, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, veteran’s status, or political belief or affiliation and the equal opportunity and access to facilities shall be available to all. This policy is particularly applicable in the admission of students in all colleges, and in their academic pursuits. It also is applicable in the University-owned or University-approved housing, food services, extracurricular activities and all other student services. It is a guiding policy in the employment of students either by the University or by outsiders through the University and in the employment of faculty and staff.

UND is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. Women, minorities, people with disabilities, and veterans are strongly encouraged to apply.
Federal law requires that good faith recruitment efforts be made to increase employment opportunities for members of protected classes when underutilization within an employee job classification exists. When recruiting, it is important to actively seek qualified applicants who are members of underrepresented groups. Generating a diverse and qualified applicant pool requires significant effort to reach those looking for new opportunities, as well as the outstanding individuals who are not actively looking for a new job. A recruitment plan should contain strategies to move the University towards these goals.
The informal exchange of information among colleagues is still one of the most successful practices for identifying qualified job applicants, so long as underrepresented candidates are included. You are actively recruiting if you have:
- Networked to make connections to diverse communities, such as:
- Professional organizations representing diverse groups
- Conferences, seminars, job fairs and networking events
- Other professional social networking media
- Joining online group relevant to your department and taking an active part in them
- Your own diverse friends, neighbors, and colleagues
- Asked members of the search committee to call colleagues to see if they know of individuals who might be qualified for and interested in this position.
- Called or sent the full position description to relevant professional organizations or networks.
- Engaged local networks of people in related fields at the University or area colleges, corporations, and businesses to see if they know of potential candidates.
- Had a discussion in a department or search committee meeting to brainstorm other active recruiting strategies early in the search process.
Advertising Your Position
Advertising is crucial because the success or failure of identifying, attracting, and maintaining a pool of qualified candidates depends, in part, on the quality and variety of communication and media used to inform potential applicants and the coordination and timely placement of advertisements and other announcements.
UND uses auto-enabled centralized advertising (at no additional charge for departments) for faculty and staff job vacancies through AppliTrack at https://phlaptweb21.applitrack.com/ndus/. Your position will be posted automatically on the University of North Dakota website. This will then generate a job placement on the North Dakota Job Service website. No-cost auto-enabled advertising venues include: Indeed.com and K12Jobspot. Additionally, departments are encouraged to advertise in journals, publications and other recruiting media that are relevant to the position. The University is committed to running open public searches aimed at attracting qualified, diverse applicant pools. In addition to traditional and technology-based advertising venues, we must engage in active recruitment to build our applicant pools. All active recruitment strategies should be noted and retained as part of the search documentation.
Pay Transparency Policy Statement
The University of North Dakota will not discharge or in any other manner discriminate against employees or applicants because they have inquired about, discussed, or disclosed their own pay or the pay of another employee or applicant. However, employees who have access to the compensation information of other employees or applicants as a part of their essential job functions cannot disclose the pay of other employees or applicants to individuals who do not otherwise have access to compensation information, unless the disclosure is (a) in response to a formal complaint or charge, (b) in furtherance of an investigation, proceedings, hearing, or action, including an investigation conducted by the employer, or (c) consistent with the University’s legal duty to furnish information. 41 CFR 60-1.35(c)
If you have any questions or feel that you have been discriminated against, please contact the Equal Opportunity & Title IX Office at 701.777.4171 or UND.EO.TitleIX@UND.edu.
