Equal opportunity statements are required on any material intended for public distribution. Copy the appropriate statement below, and paste into your document. The appropriate EEO statements are already placed on college templates.
CES Public Notification Statement/Extension Statement
All statements generally appear at the end of a document, and should be set in no larger than 8 point type and prints in black. The best choice would be 6 point type.
The Cooperative Extension Service is federally mandated to take affirmative steps to ensure that its programs and services are available to all people. One step is public notification of its intention to serve all audiences. All Extension materials intended for public distribution must include the following statement:
Educational programs of Kentucky Cooperative Extension serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability, or national origin.
Letterhead, enclosure slips, and newsletters must also include the following "cooperating" statement:
UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY, KENTUCKY STATE UNIVERSITY, U.S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE, AND KENTUCKY COUNTIES, COOPERATING
College Public Notification Statement
As part of the University of Kentucky, the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment is also required to follow steps to ensure that its programs and services are available to all people. All Non-Extension College materials intended for public distribution must include the following statement:
The College of Agriculture, Food and Environment is an Equal Opportunity Organization.
UK Public Notification Statement
As a state institution, the University is also committed to Affirmative Action policies regarding equal employment and educational opportunity. The UK public notification statement must appear on all printed materials that represent the University. The short version appears here; a long version is available in the UK Official Standards Manual. It would be extremely rare for you to use the following statement, since everything intended for public distribution should be covered by one of the two statements above.
An Equal Opportunity University
College Equal Employment Statement
