​​Affirmative Action Program


​UW-Stevens Point's affirmative action hiring practices aim to recruit a diverse pool of applicants for every job vacancy and to remove all forms of bias (intentional and unintentional) from the evaluation of applicants to ensure that no individual receives advantage or disadvantage based upon a protected status.

Below are UW-Stevens Point's official Affirmative Action Programs (AAP) narratives. A printed edition of each year's report is available in the Human Resource office, Room 133 Old Main. To protect employee confidential data, UWSP will no longer post the complete AAPs as of 2019. Instead, the most relevant aspects of the AAP will be posted. Official AAPs are kept for 3 years.
