EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Affirmative Action Program for Manchester Community College

» Download the 2013 Executive Summary (PDF)

Hiring is the traditional focus of affirmative action plans. The college's current monitoring and support systems are largely concentrated on hiring. However, it is also time to direct equal attention and creativity toward retention and career mobility.

We are continually looking for ways to increase opportunities for career development. These mechanisms must serve all employees; but they must also allow us to combat cultural forces that lead women and minorities into stereotypical roles.

All services and programs will be provided in a fair and impartial manner. These activities must reflect the positive, active spirit of affirmative action and equal employment opportunity. All deans, directors, department heads, managers by all other titles, and faculty are expected to support the College's Affirmative Action Plan as a Plan for Employment.

Executives and managers should be acquainted with the College's Plan as well as assure that their staff are aware of their obligations, and make their support observable and meaningful. This policy also mandates that employees at every level shall support and respect the advancement of equal employment principles and our workplace community. Affirmative action and equal employment opportunity are campus-wide priorities, and will remain so until our goals are met for all categories of employees, regardless of classification.
