Nondiscrimination Policy and Equal Opportunity Statement

Every member of Vermont Tech should work to ensure non-discriminatory processes and practices with faculty, staff, and students. Qualified students are recruited for, admitted to, and participate in all college programs without discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, creed, national origin, age, veteran status, or disability. Vermont Tech will provide reasonable accommodations to create equal opportunities for students with documented disabilities.

Faculty, administrators, and staff are employed without discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, creed, national origin, age, veteran status, or disability unrelated to job requirements. Vermont Tech will make reasonable accommodations to the known disability of an otherwise qualified applicant or employee.

Additionally, the Vermont State Colleges will engage in affirmative efforts to recruit, admit, and support students and to recruit, employ, and support employees in order to achieve the diversity which advances the educational mission.

The Vermont State Colleges complies with state and federal laws related to equal opportunity and non-discrimination. Any questions or complaints about potential or perceived discrimination in violation of any state or federal law should be directed to: the Vermont Tech Ombudsperson, the VSC Office of the Chancellor, the Vermont Office of the Attorney General, or the federal Equal Opportunity Employment Commission.
