INSTITUTIONAL POLICY ON PLACEMENT AND RECRUITMENT
It is in the best interests of students, colleges and employers alike that the consideration of careers and selection of employment opportunities be based on an understanding of all the relevant facts and that these considerations be made in an atmosphere conducive to objective thought.
The recruiting of college students for employment by business, industry, government and education should be carried out by the employers, candidates, and Wittenberg University to serve best the following objectives:
- The open and free selection of employment opportunities that will provide candidates with the optimum long-term utilization of their talents, consistent with their personal objectives.
- The promotion of intelligent and responsible choice of a career by the candidates for their own greatest personal satisfaction and the most fruitful long-range investment of their talents for themselves, for their employers, and for society.
- The development of the placement function as an integral part of the educational system so that it, as well as the total recruiting process, may be oriented toward the establishment of high standards of integrity and conduct among all parties.
The Wittenberg University Career Center seeks to facilitate the selection of appropriate employment by students. Diversity in student needs and also capacities requires that a wide range of job opportunities be available. Since placement activities are student services and not expressions of political, social or economic philosophies, Wittenberg University endorses the policy of making its placement facilities equally available to any equal opportunity employer engaged in lawful pursuits.
