Affirmative Action, Civil Rights & Diversity

ACES is committed to welcoming diversity and inclusion. ACES is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer. It is our policy to provide equal employment opportunities for all individuals without regard to race, sex, religion, color, national origin, age, disability, protected veteran status, genetic information, or any other classification protected by applicable law. Our commitment to diversity assures our educational programs and employment opportunities are welcoming to all.

We recognize the mutual benefits gainedwhen we cultivate a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming community where the unique contributions, talents and skills of our faculty, staff and stakeholders are acknowledged, valued, respected and rewarded.

This site is integral in our efforts to raise awareness of our roles and responsibilities. It is intended to serve as a collection point and resource center for policies, procedures and plans relative to equal access/equal opportunity, affirmative action, counseling, complaint processing and resolution with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, Alabama A&M University and Auburn University. Ready access to these resources will assist ACES staff to address unique and/or difficult questions.
