Publication Requirements

Affirmative Action and Americans with Disabilities Act 

The university, along with other organizations that receive federal funds, is required to print Affirmative Action and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) statements on certain materials. The regulations apply to “recruitment materials or publications containing general information that [the organization] makes available to participants, beneficiaries, applicants, or employees.” Affirmative Action and ADA statements must be included in those materials or publications. The U-M General Counsel requires that the following publications contain these statements: 

  • Bulletins 
  • Catalogs 
  • Academic program announcements 
  • Application forms 
  • Materials used to recruit employees 

Full Affirmative Action and Americans with Disabilities Act Statements can be found on the website of the Office of Institutional Equity

In instances where space is at a premium, specifically ads and posters, please use abbreviated statements as follows:
