Editor for this issue: Christy Bird
The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.
Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Languages. Both the home department and the Linguistics Program will be
involved in the tenure process.
The Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, its many units, and the

is inclusive. Women, minorities, and people with disabilities are
encouraged to apply. The University is an EEO/AA institution.
