Mission Statement

The Gainesville Location Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Committee is charged with developing policy and carrying out activities to increase the diversity of the workforce at the U. S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service (ARS), Center for Medical, Agricultural, and Veterinary Entomology (CMAVE). We advise the Center director and the ARS South Atlantic Area (SAA) Office about EEO/CR concerns and prepare reports for SAA and ARS Headquarters administrators. Each year, we sponsor several career development and training activities, science outreach programs, and special observances. The committee's science education outreach activities have received community and SAA commendations.
