Equity and Access Services coordinates equal employment opportunity and affirmative action compliance for Virginia Commonwealth University. We help address employment disparities and create an environment of trust for VCU employees.

Our role includes creating an annual affirmative action plan, monitoring VCU’s affirmative action and equal employment opportunity compliance, and training employees about employment equity rights and responsibilities.

Affirmative action

As an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer, VCU promotes the full realization of employment opportunity for minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and veterans. VCU bases all employment decisions only on job requirements. These efforts apply to all employment actions, including but not limited to recruitment, selection, hiring, promotion, and compensation. The current affirmative action plan is available for review at Equity and Access Services between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

An Affirmative Action Plan Executive Overview (AAPEO) was created to provide a high-level summary of each establishment’s progress toward meeting affirmative action benchmarks and can be accessed by authorized members of the University community.


All VCU employees are invited to voluntarily self-identify their veteran status, disability status, race and ethnicity. Providing this self-identification information will support the university’s equal employment opportunity and affirmative action initiatives. To self-identify, login to eServices and select the "Personal Information" tab. Options to self-identify veteran classification, disability status, and ethnicity and race are available in separate links.
