Equal Opportunity College

The College is committed to equal employment and admission opportunities; therefore, it prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, pregnancy and genetic information consistent with the applicable state and federal laws. This policy governs all aspects of employment, including, but not limited to: job selection, job assignment, compensation, performance evaluations, discipline, demotion, termination, benefits and training. 

This policy also governs the admission of students and all campus programs, services and activities. 

The College does not discriminate on the basis of gender in admission to or employment in its education programs or activities. If at any time an employee feels that he/she has been subjected to or has observed discrimination, the employee must report such conduct to one of the College’s Title IX Coordinators so that an investigation can be initiated and appropriate action be taken. The confidentiality of all such inquiries and reports will be respected to the fullest extent possible. 

Employees can raise concerns and make reports without fear of reprisal. Employees will not be retaliated against in any manner for reporting perceived discrimination pursuant to this policy. Anyone found to be engaging in any type of unlawful discrimination will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment. 

Equal Access 

The College is committed to the policy that all persons shall have equal access to its programs, facilities and employment. The College supports an environment that fosters respect and values all people. It promotes diversity with fair and impartial treatment of all students and employees in all terms and conditions of admissions and employment.

El Colegio Universitario no discrimina por motivos de género en la admisión o empleo en sus programas o actividades educativas.

La confidencialidad de todas estas consultas e informes se respetará en la mayor medida posible. 

Los empleados pueden plantear inquietudes y hacer informes sin temor a represalias. No se tomarán represalias contra los empleados de ninguna manera por informar la discriminación percibida de conformidad con esta política. Cualquier persona que se encuentre involucrada en cualquier tipo de discriminación ilegal estará sujeta a medidas disciplinarias, que pueden incluir el despido.
