Based on federal requirements, UCSD annually:
- Reviews its staff workforce composition
- Identifies underutilization by comparing the workforce composition with the availability of women and people of color with requisite skills in the job market
- Establishes placement goals to increase the representation of women and people of color in underutilized areas.
- Serve as reasonably attainable objectives for applying good faith efforts to make all aspects of the affirmative action program work
- Represent a benchmark for evaluating university affirmative action progress
- Provide guidance for an employer to focus outreach and other efforts in job areas where women and people of color are underutilized
- Do not require the hiring of a person who is less qualified
- Do not require an employer to hire a specified number of persons, which is expressly forbidden
To determine if a job title has a placement goal, use the Lookup Underutilization Info tool.
If you are hiring for a job title with a placement goal, work in partnership with Employment & Community Outreach Services to develop a recruitment plan to ensure a diverse applicant pool.
