The University of Pennsylvania is an equal opportunity employer. As a federal contractor, Penn complies with federal regulations pertaining to affirmative action, equal opportunity, and nondiscrimination. We ask your assistance in helping us to meet our federal compliance obligations of monitoring our recruitment, promotion and retention processes.
Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing the form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.
If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
