Affirmative Action Plan for Equal Employment Opportunity
The Affirmative Action Plan for Equal Employment Opportunity (UF Regulation C1-1.0061 - pdf) implements the Equal Employment Opportunity Policy:

The University of Florida, under the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and 504 federal legislation, is required to make reasonable accommodations to the known physical and mental limitations of otherwise qualified individuals with disabilities.
To help provide the best possible service to students, staff, faculty and visitors, the University of Florida has an ADA Compliance Office with a coordinator responsible for access for persons with disabilities. The ADA coordinator assists anyone with questions about access.
Sexual Harassment Policy
The University of Florida is committed to maintaining a workplace and educational environment free from sexual and other forms of illegal harassment. Sexual and other harassment is reprehensible and subverts the mission of the University of Florida and will not be tolerated. It threatens the careers of faculty and staff and the educational experience of our students. The purpose of this policy is to prevent sexual harassment and to offer students and employees who believe they have been sexually harassed a means of redress and an environment conducive to learning and working. Retaliation against an individual who truthfully complains about sexual harassment or who cooperates with an investigation of a complaint will not be tolerated.This policy applies to visitors, faculty, staff, students, and volunteers of the University.
