Abstract:
The Personnel Office of the University of Michigan was founded in 1945. This office dealt with the development and implementation of personnel policies and issues of hiring, firing, promotion, tenure, sabbatical leaves, remuneration, and contract negotiations. The records of this office are generally closed for thirty years after their creation. The Affirmative Action Office was created in 1972 to monitor the university's enforcement of federal and state affirmative action legislation such as equal employment opportunity, Title IX, age discrimination in employment act, etc and reporting the university's compliance to the federal and state governments. This office was also responsible for ensuring fair and equitable hiring practices within the university. In February 1994, the two offices were united and reorganized to form the Office of Human Resources and Affirmative Action.
