The UGA Equal Opportunity Office is periodically required by the U.S. Department of Labor to survey the number of “special disabled veterans,” “veterans of the Vietnam era,” “other protected veterans” and “newly separated veterans” in the UGA workforce.
Veterans who have not taken the survey, or who joined UGA after Sept. 20, 2002, are eligible to take it. Participation is voluntary and failure to participate does not preclude identifying one’s self as being in one or all of the survey categories at a later date. The information collected will be treated as confidential, and neither participation nor failure to participate in this survey will form the basis of any adverse treatment. Neither participation nor nonparticipation in this survey will have any effect upon veterans’ benefits any employee may be presently receiving or entitled to receive.
Veterans who wish to participate should fill out the form at uga.edu/eoo/eoo_frameset_forms.htm. Completed forms can be returned by campus or regular mail to the Equal Opportunity Office, 3 Peabody Hall, Athens GA 30602-1622, or faxed to (706) 542-2822. Questions may be directed to Len Davis at (706) 542-7912.
