Please Complete New Federal Regulation "Self-Identification Status"

As a federal contractor, Kent State University’s Office of Compliance, Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action and the Talent Acquisition Office need your support in aligning with new federal regulations.

All new hires and current employees are required to verify and/or update their race, ethnicity, veteran and disability statuses by Nov. 1, 2015. To verify or update your information, please use the steps listed below:

Log in to FlashLine, select the My Profile page by clicking on the profile image. Access to update your information can be found in the Secure Account Access section. Once on the Personal Information page, you are able to view and complete all three statuses: race/ethnicity, disability and veteran self-identification information. Please complete the following:

  1. View/Update Veterans Classification
  2. View/Update Disability Status
  3. View/Update Ethnicity and Race

This process is voluntary; however, we encourage all employees to participate before Nov. 1. This information is gathered for federal statistical data reporting and is not used in any employment-related decision making.

For additional information on race, disability and veteran self-identification, please contact the Office of Compliance, Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action at or 330-672-2038.
