Employers posting jobs to UT recruiting platforms; holding on-campus information sessions and interviews; and participating in on-campus career fairs, programming, and other events must adhere to University nondiscrimination and equal opportunity policies in order to participate in on-campus recruiting programming. Familiarizing yourself with these policies can help you better understand the rights and protections afforded to you as an applicant and University student.
- Nondiscrimination Policy
- Prohibition of Sexual Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault, Sexual Misconduct, Interpersonal Violence, and Stalking
- Hate and Bias Incidents
If you believe an employer or recruiter participating in on-campus recruiting has acted in violation of University nondiscrimination policies, please reach out to your college’s career services office. If you are a current student and you or someone you know has experienced sexual misconduct or a hate or bias incident during the application process for an opportunity marketed through on-campus recruiting or during a job or internship experience secured through on-campus recruiting (or are unsure whether an incident qualifies as a hate or bias incident), please also consider making use of the following informational, reporting, and support resources at UT:
- Campus Climate Response Team
- Office of the Dean of Students
- Campus Climate Incident Online Report Form (for hate and bias incidents)
- Title IX Reporting Form (for incidents of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct)
- Counseling and Mental Health Center
To support employers seeking to diversify their cross-campus candidates and supplement the school-specific career resources maintained by UT’s career services offices, TRIS aggregates community-specific career resources relevant to diverse student populations on campus, including job postings of interest, targeted recruitment programs, professional associations, and online resources. Connect with these resources by exploring pages relevant to your search.

UT’s 16 career centers are your first stop for a range of career advising services, programming, and tools to support your career development. If you are a current student, connect with your college’s career services office for career education and on-campus recruiting activities.
