Subject: VETS 100 Annual Survey
The University of Tennessee is committed to equal employment opportunity and affirmative action. As a government contractor, the university is subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Acts of 1974, as amended by the Jobs for Veterans Act of 2002.
The university also is an institution committed to creating and sustaining a welcoming, supportive, and inclusive campus environment that recognizes and respects all staff and faculty as valued members of our campus community.
Each year, employees are asked to self-identify regarding their veteran status. You are asked to help the university comply with reporting requirements under federal law and provide information that can help the university recruit, retain, and acknowledge veterans in our workforce.
Please complete the form even if you have responded in the past. Access the survey here and follow the directions as given. Your response by September 7 will be appreciated.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your cooperation.
