Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action

The State University of New York College at Geneseo actively supports equal opportunity for all persons and takes affirmative action to see that both the total student and employee populations at the College enjoy equal opportunities. The College is based upon the academic and personal qualifications of applicants and is granted without regard to age, color, disability, marital status, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, religion, race, or status as a disabled or Vietnam-era veteran. Financial assistance, within the limits of resources available, is provided on an equal basis to all qualified students, including minorities and women, who are making satisfactory progress toward a degree. The College makes its placement services available only to those firms and school systems which comply with existing equal opportunity laws, and so informs all clients and potential employers. Employers who seek to restrict applicants to a particular race, color, religion, national origin, age, marital status, or sex (except in limited cases where sex is a bona fide occupational qualification) are not served; nor are employers who fail to depict minorities, women, and individuals with disabilities in a favorable light in promotional literature or other materials. The College encourages the development of courses which are relevant to the experiences of, and facilitates and supports appropriate expansion of research materials dealing with minorities and women. The College encourages the involvement of students, faculty, and administrators, including those who are members of minority groups, in the affairs of the community.


Student Records

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 permits current or former students to inspect College educational records pertaining to them as individuals and to obtain copies for a fee. Students are also accorded a right to question the content of a record and to receive a formal hearing if dissatisfied with responses to such questions. Written consent from a student is required before personally identifiable information can be released from the individual educational record in all cases except those specifically exempted by law.
