Attention Veterans

    The United States Department of Labor Office of Veterans'
Employment and Training requires the university to submit annual
reports of faculty and staff who volunteer information as to
whether they are Vietnam era veterans and/or special disabled

     "Veteran of the Vietnam era" means a person who served more
than 180 days of active military, naval or air service, any part
of which was during the period Aug. 5, 1964, through May 7, 1975,
and who
a)   was discharged or released therefrom with other than a
dishonorable discharge, or
b)   was discharged or released from active duty because of a
service-connected disability.

     "Special disabled veteran" means a veteran 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 Veterans Administration for a disability
a)   rated at 30 percent or more, or
b)   rated at 10 or 20 percent in the case of a veteran who has
been determined under section 1506 of Title 38, U.S.C., to have a
serious employment handicap, or
c)   a person who was discharged or released from active duty
because of service-connected disability.

     By law, provision of the information or refusal to provide
the information will not subject any person to any adverse
treatment and will be kept confidential.

     Any person who wishes to volunteer information as to his/her
veteran status is requested to provide the Office of Affirmative
Action the following information by Feb. 28, 1996: name, job
title, department, date of hire, identification as Vietnam era
veteran or special disabled veteran.

     For more information, contact Yvonne Theodore, affirmative
action officer, 205 Garland Hall, Homewood campus, (410)
