Equal Employment Opportunity

Policy

Equal Employment Opportunity has been, and will continue to be, a fundamental principle at RISD, where employment actions are based upon personal capabilities and qualifications without unlawful discrimination because of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, genetics, or any other protected characteristic as established by law.

We also are committed to the understanding that cultural, ethnic, intellectual, and other diversity among our applicants and employees will positively contribute to enriching the College environment. We therefore make efforts to ensure that our employment opportunities are known widely and that full consideration is given to all qualified candidates and employees.
