As a federal contractor, Kent State is required to comply with the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) to allow employees to self-identify in the above categories. 

It is our hope that through your participation in this voluntary process, Kent State will continue to be recognized for its outstanding institutional commitment to diversity and inclusion.

The information does not become part of your personnel record, nor is it used in any decision-making processes related to employment.
