Create an EEO Form

Administrators in Faculty Search can create custom EEO forms. Admins can set the program to require the EEO form for all new positions, and designate a form as the default for all new positions created.

Faculty Search also provides Institutional Administrators with a standard, VEVRAA/503-compliant EEO form, available from the Administration page. The form can be used as is, or cloned and edited.

Organizing Forms:

Once your questions are added you can drag and drop to change the order in which they appear and also add formatting to customize how the form displays.

For more complex forms, we recommend including these elements for order and clarity:

  1. Section Divider: A simple horizontal line that can visually break up the form.
  2. Section Heading: A large-text label that can be placed atop a discrete section of your form.
  3. Section Description: Contextual text that can be tucked underneath a heading and above the actual questions.

To add elements to the form, click the down arrow to the right of "Add Question" at the bottom left of the page
