Voluntary self-identification of Veteran Status Survey

Miami University’s office of equity and equal opportunity (OEEO) invites employees to take a voluntary self-identification survey of veteran status.

Why are you being asked to complete this survey?

Miami University seeks to take affirmative action and advance in employment: (1) disabled veterans; (2) recently separated veterans; (3) active duty wartime or campaign badge veterans; and (4) armed forces service medal veterans. Because Miami University does business with the federal government, we are required to survey and report the number of employees and new hires who identify in the veteran classifications listed below. Completing this survey is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. Your answer cannot and will not be used against you in any way.

These classifications are defined as follows:

* A "disabled veteran" is one of the following:

  • a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or
  • a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability

* A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service.

* An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

* An "armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an armed forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Reasonable Accommodation Notice

Federal law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities. Please tell us if you require a reasonable accommodation to apply for a job or to perform your job.

Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter or using specialized equipment.

If you believe you need a reasonable accommodation you may contact Mary Jane Leveline in the department of human resources at (513) 529-2027 or by email at
