Board Policy


Nondiscrimination and Equal Opportunity Policy


Glendale Community College District is a multicultural community of people from diverse racial, ethnic, linguistic and class backgrounds, national origins, religious and political beliefs, physical and mental abilities, and sexual orientations.  The activities, programs, classes, workshops/lectures and everyday interactions of this District are enriched by our acceptance of one another, and we strive to learn from each other in an atmosphere of positive engagement and mutual respect.


Implicit in this mutual respect is the right of each of us to live, study, teach, and work free from harassment or denigration on the basis of race, age, religious preference, gender, sexual orientation, color, national origin, or disability.  Any violation of this right—verbal or written abuse, threats, harassment, intimidation, or violence against person or property—will be considered a violation of the principles of community that are an integral part of the focus, goals, and mission of the Glendale Community College District.


Glendale Community College District is committed to providing an equal opportunity for admissions, student financing, student support programs and activities, and employment regardless of race, religious creed, color, age, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, marital status, medical condition, or disability in accordance with federal, state, and local regulations.  This Nondiscrimination and Equal Opportunity Policy covers admissions, access, and treatment in District programs and activities, and application for and treatment in District employment.
