Invitation to Self-Identify as a Veteran or Employee with a Disability

Category: Employees

Human Resources

The University of Tennessee strives to develop a diverse educational environment and workforce and to create and sustain a welcoming, supportive and inclusive culture.

UT also is required by law to take affirmative action to employ and advance qualified persons with disabilities, qualified special disabled veterans and qualified Vietnam era veterans.

During the hiring process, all prospective employees applying to UT are invited to self-identify as either a person with a disability or a covered veteran, and federal regulations require the University to give existing employees the same opportunity.

Please notify the University at any time of a current or previous disability or veteran status using the employee self-service website. Information submitted will be kept confidential and used for federal reporting and recordkeeping purposes only.

Additional information is available about Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Vietnam Era Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 on the above-referenced website. Qualified veterans are encouraged to complete both the annual VETS 100A survey and the form linked above.

Questions can be directed to the HR Call Center at 888-444-UTHR or to local equity and diversity offices.
