Equal Opportunity

Equal Opportunity/Title IX

Peirce College Is an Equal Opportunity Institution. 

The College is committed to ensuring equal opportunity in all employment decisions, policies and practices and in connection with all educational programs and activities (including but not limited to recruitment, admissions, access to programs and course offerings, counseling, financial aid and scholarships, employment, use of facilities and College-sponsored extracurricular activities).

The College will not engage in or tolerate unlawful discrimination, harassment or retaliation on the basis of race, gender, ethnicity, religion, age, national origin, color, disability, marital status, familial status, veteran status, ancestry, genetic characteristics, pregnancy, childbirth or medical conditions related to pregnancy or childbirth, creed, citizenship, sexual orientation, military status or any other protected classifications in its employment, admissions, programs and activities as required by Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other applicable statutes and College policies. 

The College’s Policy on equal employment opportunity supports and is consistent with the College's commitment to enhancing diversity and inclusiveness. Diversity means not only membership in the various "protected groups" identified above but also diversity in experience, perspective, ideas, style and contacts. We believe that we are much stronger as a College as a result of the richness of our diversity and strive to ensure that we have policies and practices which are respectful of diversity and promote inclusion.
