Using the Nondiscrimination Statement in Printed Materials
As you print or revise publications for your department, please be reminded that the university's Nondiscrimination Statement must be included in all departmental publications, such as brochures, pamphlets, manuals, and guidebooks, describing or inviting participation in programs at the University of Iowa.
The inclusion of the Nondiscrimination Statement is required by federal regulation and is designed to make clear to prospective applicants or participants the university's commitment to equal opportunity in employment and equal access to its programs and activities.
With the increase in desktop publishing, it is important for individual departments to be aware of this requirement and to include the Nondiscrimination Statement in departmental publications which are not printed by Printing Services, University Relations, or UIHC Public Information.
Some departments have inquired as to whether the text of the Nondiscrimination Statement must be placed on departmental web pages; there is no such requirement. A link to the Nondiscrimination Statement will be located on the University of Iowa's homepage.
