New Self-Identification Survey for employees

September 14, 2010

Human Resource Services and the Office of Equal Opportunity are conducting a self identification survey of all employees due to changes in the collection and reporting of self identified data. The survey is the result of governmental reporting requirements for the administration of civil rights laws and regulations that Colorado State University must follow.

Regulatory changes

Due to the regulatory changes, many of the values that employees have previously provided to Colorado State University are no longer valid and will not be used in future reporting.

To assist Colorado State University to comply with the laws and regulations governing self identification, we are inviting all employees to voluntarily self-identify their:

  • race
  • ethnicity
  • disability status
  • veteran status

Submission of this information is voluntary and refusal to provide it will not subject any employee to any adverse treatment.

Info obtained will be kept confidential

The information obtained will be kept confidential and may only be used in accordance with the provisions of applicable laws, executive orders, and regulations, including those that require the information to be summarized and reported to the federal government for civil rights enforcement. When reported, data will not identify any specific individual.

Employees may access the survey by logging into the Campus Administrative Portal. Upon logging in, employees will immediately be invited to complete the self identification survey.

If logging into the Campus Administrative Portal is not convenient, employees may contact the Office of Equal Opportunity at (970) 491-5836 or to request a hard copy of the survey which can be completed and returned to the Office of Equal Opportunity.

Thank you for assisting Colorado State University meet its regulatory obligations.

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Equal Opportunity at (970) 491-5836 or e-mail
