Self-identification Audit Set to Begin
The Office of Institutional Equity and Human Resources are preparing for the annual affirmative action plan. Part of this preparation is an audit of self-identification data for all employees. If the audit indicates that self-identification data is missing for an employee, the employee will receive an e-mail generated by the audit process inviting the employee to provide self-identification information by going to Employee Self-Service in OnePurdue or accessing the Self Identification Compliance Form on the Human Resources Web site.
If you receive an e-mail sent by the Office of Institutional Equity asking you for self-identification information, this is a legitimate e-mail being sent by the University seeking your assistance with our efforts to comply with federal affirmative action program requirements.

Please consider providing  your self-identification information to the University. If you have any questions, e-mail the Office of Institutional Equity or call 260-481-6106.
