Equal Employment Opportunity And Affirmative Action Commitment

It is the policy of the Icahn School of Medicine that all decisions regarding educational and employment opportunities and performance are made on the basis of merit and without discrimination because of race, sex, color, creed, age, national origin, handicap, veteran status, marital status, or sexual orientation. In keeping with its efforts to achieve a broad representation of women and minority groups throughout the institution, Icahn School of Medicine has an Affirmative Action Program. This Program is designed to realize the School's commitment to equal educational and employment opportunities, to achieve compliance with federal, state, and local laws and regulations, and to implement equal opportunity objectives by meeting the spirit as well as the letter of the law and contractual requirements.
