HR Request Employees Self-Identify with Disability and/or Vets Status  
As part of our Affirmative Action Program, referenced in President Stuart R. Bell’s Reaffirmation of Equal Opportunity, Nondiscrimination, and Affirmative Action Policy Statement sent out September 8, 2017, the University is required to track the number of individuals with disabilities and/or protected veterans that are employed at UA. The University invites employees who fall into one or both categories to confidentially identify themselves by completing the Voluntary Self-Identification of Individuals with Disabilities and/or Voluntary Self-Identification of Protected Veterans forms that can be found on the Employee tab under Employee Services on myBama. Employees who have previously submitted this information do not have to submit it again, unless your status has changed. Contact the HR Service Center at 348-7732 with questions.
