The University of Oregon (“University”) believes that Prospective Employers should be free to recruit UO students through job postings, events, presentations or interviews, and that all students should be free to determine whether they desire to participate in such activities.

For the purpose of this policy, “Prospective Employers” may include graduate schools, branches of the US military, non-profit and volunteer organizations, as well as other employers.

The University’s posting of an employment opportunity on its website or the scheduling of a Prospective Employer's representative on the University’s campus are not an endorsement by the University of the Prospective Employer or of the Prospective Employer's organization's policies

Recruiting representatives of Prospective Employers, whether public or private, are treated equally. Prospective Employers must abide by all University Career Center policies and procedures. Coordination of and arrangements for job postings, events, and employment interviews are the responsibility of the University Career Center or career services offices housed in UO colleges and schools, as appropriate.
