Veteran and Disability Self-Identification

Villanova University has recently updated the veterans and disability voluntary self-identification forms.

Villanova University is a federal government contractor and as a recipient of federal funding (funding for research, student financial aid, etc.), Villanova is required to collect and report information on our applicants and employees to assess our affirmative action efforts.

Villanova is required to conduct various analyses of our workforce and to develop an Affirmative Action Plan. Villanova conducts an annual analysis of the employment of women, minorities, veterans and individuals with disabilities in our workforce, as well as an analysis of the personnel actions that have taken place during the year, such as hires, promotions and terminations. This information assists us in identifying potential barriers to equal employment opportunities, especially with respect to women, minorities, veterans and individuals with disabilities.

So that we can report aggregate data as accurately as possible, and develop effective Affirmative Action plans, we ask that employees consider self-identifying as a veteran and/or a person with a disability. A designation option to "decline to state" is provided, and submission of veteran and disability information is voluntary. The information is used only in aggregate form and only as needed to comply with the required analyses. Declining to provide this information will not subject you to any adverse treatment.
