Title IX Statement

It is the policy of Research College of Nursing to prohibit discrimination on the basis of age, color, disability, gender, national origin, race, religion, sex, or veteran’s status in regard to the administration of all campus programs, services, and activities, and the admission of student, employment actions, or other sponsored activities.

Research College of Nursing is committed to providing equal opportunities for all persons and does not discriminate or retaliate on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, sex, pregnancy status, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin or ancestry, age, gender, disability, citizenship or intending citizenship status, gender identity, veteran status, or any other status protected by law (“protected status”). This policy extends to admissions, employment, housing, services, and in other educational programs and activities that Research College of Nursing operates (collectively “programs and activities”). Harassment, whether verbal, non-verbal, or physical, that is based on any of these protected statuses constitutes a form of discrimination if it denies or limits a person’s ability to participate in or benefit from Research College of Nursing’s programs and activities. This policy covers employees, students, applicants for employment or admission, contractors, vendors, guests, and participants in College-sponsored programs and activities. The academic or work relationship sometimes extends beyond the Research College of Nursing campus. Therefore, in some situations, this policy may apply to allegations of discrimination or retaliation that occurs off campus or during after-hours functions sponsored by Research College of Nursing.

Research College of Nursing complies with federal, state, and local equal opportunity laws and strives to keep the workplace free form all forms of illegal discrimination and retaliation.

Sec. 1681, et seq., and all subsequent regulations, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in all programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance. Research College of Nursing receives such assistance and complies with this law and its implementation of regulation at 34 C.F.R. Part 106 (http://www2.ed.gov/policy/rights/reg/ocr/edlite-34cfr106.html).

To ensure compliance with Title IX, Research College of Nursing has designated the Title IX Coordinator as the primary contact responsible for developing, adopting, and/or assuring the dissemination of the College’s nondiscrimination policy and for making the policy available to the College’s community.
