Diversity as a Core Principle/Equal Opportunity

Equal Opportunity Statement

  1. Delta College embraces equal opportunity as a core value: we actively promote, advocate, respect and value differences, and we foster a welcoming environment of openness and appreciation for all. Delta prohibits discrimination in accordance with, and as defined by, applicable federal, state, and local law, particularly non-discrimination in employment, education, public accommodation, or public service on the basis of age, arrest record, color, disability, ethnicity, familial status, gender identity, genetic information, height, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, veteran status, and weight.
  2. The College will take action to expand equality of opportunity in employment. The College will develop and maintain educational programs and services that meet the needs of underrepresented minority groups, women, persons with disabilities, and others who have been and/or are currently being discriminated against in our society. The College will also initiate programs that will increase, on the part of all personnel, awareness of, and sensitivity to, the interests and needs of these populations.
  3. All employees of the College have access to a Grievance Procedure for Equal Opportunity/Equity Concerns for any case involving possible discrimination. Copies of the policy are available from the Human Resources Office. All members of the Senate Assembly also have access to the Senate Grievance Procedure. They may file under either policy but not both. Procedure guidelines for the Senate Grievance Procedure are included in the Senate handbook.
