Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action
The University of Illinois at Chicago recognizes its responsibility to facilitate the participation of all qualified individuals who seek education and/or employment in the University of Illinois system. Equal opportunity shall be provided in the hiring, retention, training, transfer, promotion, compensation, and upgrading of all employees, without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, disability, unfavorable discharge from the military, or status as a disabled veteran or veteran of the Vietnam era, except as specifically exempted by law. This nondiscrimination policy applies to admissions, employment, access to, and treatment in university programs and activities. Among the forms of invidious discrimination prohibited by university policy, but not by law, is discrimination, including harassment, on the basis of sexual orientation.
The UIC Police Department invites people of all groups to qualify as members of the department. This policy has provided the university with a police department composed of many racial and ethnic groups working together to accomplish a common mission (Link to mission statement section). It is the goal of the UIC Police Department to develop officers who are professional, open, discerning, capable, and dedicated to serving our diverse community.
