  • The Department of the Navy and the Naval Postgraduate School are committed to ensuring in both policy and practice that all persons are afforded equal opportunity for employment, advancement, and treatment regardless of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age or disability. Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) is promoted through a continuing Affirmative Employment Program in all situations where under-representation or under-utilization of minorities, women, and individuals with disabilities exist. This includes a work environment free from discrimination which provides equal opportunity for advancement to an individual's maximum potential, and fair and impartial review of complaints of discrimination. It also includes a work force free from sexual harassment by supervisors, colleagues, or subordinates (civilian or military).  

    The processing of discrimination complaints applies to both appropriated and non-appropriated fund employees of the Naval Postgraduate School and designated tenant activities. Complainants, their representatives or witnesses, EEO Counselors, and EEO program officials shall be free from restraint, interference, coercion, discrimination, or reprisal at any stage during the presentation and processing of a discrimination complaint, or any time thereafter.

    Within the framework of the Equal Employment Opportunity Program there are two major divisions, the Discrimination Complaints Process and Affirmative Action which consists of the Special Emphasis Programs. The major goal of these programs is to identify barriers in the employment, advancement, and retention of that particular special emphasis area.
