Invitation to Update Information in HR/Pay

All KU employees

Colleagues,

KU is committed to assuring equal opportunity in employment for all people, and across this institution we aspire to acknowledge the many contributions of our employees with disabilities.

As a state university and federal contractor, KU is required to annually report race, ethnicity, disability and veteran data of our workforce and employee searches. The federal government defines disabilities as covering a variety of conditions and illnesses that can limit major life activities — including cancer, diabetes, PTSD, and depression.

All KU employees are invited to self-identify or update previous disclosures in the Personal Information section after logging into HR/Pay. It only takes a moment. Your participation and information will remain confidential. Neither your supervisor nor your department have access to this confidential information.

The information you provide will:

  • help Human Resource Management provide the federally required numerical data,
  • help us measure how we are doing in our current diversity and accessibility initiatives — such as lunchtime equity and inclusion discussions
  • further empower KU employees with disabilities to seek accommodations
  • guide investments that bring new programming to campus, like the recent Axis Dance Company performance. 

Inclusion at KU starts with you. For more information regarding the importance of self-disclosure, I encourage you to watch a short video.  If you are uncertain about what is considered a disability, please visit the HRM website to review the federal government’s definitions.

Rock Chalk!
Neeli
