EEO and ADA Statements

EEO Statements

All Purdue Extension materials must include an Equal Access/Equal Opportunity (EEO) statement. In addition, all Purdue Extension templates provided on this site contain the proper EEO statement. DO NOT remove the EEO statement from these templates.

The full EEO statement should be used for all numbered or unnumbered Purdue Extension publications (including Vet Med, 4-H, HHS). The current version of the statement can be found here:

When space is at a premium, such as some brochures or fliers, it is permissable - but not desirable - to use a short version of the statement: "Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service is an equal access/equal opportunity institution."

For more information on where and how to use EEO statements see the Purdue Extension Style Guide.

For guidelines on translating publications, see the Agricultural Communication Publishing Translation Guidelines

ADA Statements

All materials that announce Purdue Extension events (like workshops or field days), should include the following ADA statement:

"If you need a reasonable accomodation to participate in this program, prior to the meeting, contact PERSON'S NAME at (###) ###-####." In this example, replace "PERSON'S NAME" and "(###) ###-####" with the name and telephone number (or e-mail address) of the event's organizer or someone responsible for handling accommodation​ requests.
