MCC Non-Discrimination Policy
1.03.00 NON-DISCRIMINATION, EQUAL OPPORTUNITY AND DIVERSITY
(excerpted from the MCC Board of Trustees Policy Manual)
It is the policy of Muskegon Community College to provide equal opportunities and not discriminate in enrollment, education, employment, public accommodations, activities or services on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, political persuasion, disability, height, weight, age, or other prohibitive matters.
It is the policy of Muskegon Community College, in keeping with efforts to establish an environment in which the dignity and worth of all members of the institutional community are respected, that harassment of students and employees at the college relating to any of the above-protected categories is unacceptable conduct and will not be tolerated.
It is the policy of Muskegon Community College to patronize only those firms and vendors that demonstrate a commitment to equal opportunity within their own enterprises and who abide by Federal and State laws.
It is the responsibility of Muskegon Community College as a leading educational institution in the community to further these ends by providing equal opportunity, equity, and non-discrimination in employment, business practices, curriculum, enrollment, education, public accommodations, activities, and community services. As a reflection of this commitment, MCC strives to promote inclusion, equal access, acceptance and appreciation of others, while encouraging students, employees, and others to grow as individuals, and preparing these individuals to function effectively in a diverse, multicultural, and global society.
The college will strive to promote equal opportunities, and cultural diversity in the community through continuing education efforts including course offerings, seminars, panel discussions, and any other role in which the college can make a contribution toward these ends.
