SUBJECT:

Systemwide Guidelines for Affirmative Action Programs in Employment - Executive Order 1088

Attached is a copy of Executive Order 1088 relating to the systemwide guidelines for affirmative action programs in employment.

Executive Order 1088 reaffirms California State University's commitment to maintaining and implementing employment policies and procedures that comply with applicable affirmative action laws and regulations. Previously, the systemwide affirmative action policy was combined with the nondiscrimination policy in one executive order. For clarity, the two policies are now articulated in two separate executive orders. This executive order supersedes Executive Order 883 and articulates the systemwide affirmative action policy.

In accordance with policy of the California State University, the campus president has the responsibility for implementing executive orders where applicable and for maintaining the campus repository and index for all executive orders.
