Human Rights and Non-Discrimination

Wallace Community College is committed to equal opportunity education. The College is guided in philosophy and practice by the principle that individuals will not be treated differently because of race, creed, religion, color, sex, age, national origin, disability, or marital status, and that legitimate and reasonable access to facilities is available to all. This principle particularly applies to the admission of students in all programs of the College and in their academic pursuits. It is also applicable in extracurricular activities, all student services, employment of students by the College, and employment of instructors and non-instructional personnel. Therefore, Wallace Community College is in compliance with Title VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended; the Civil Rights Act of 1991; Executive Order 11246, as amended; Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, as amended; Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act; and The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Wallace Community College is an Affirmative Action, Equal Employment and Educational Opportunity Institution.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, as amended, prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex. Sexual harassment is a form of discrimination that is illegal under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended for employees and under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, as amended, for students.   Each campus of Wallace Community College has trained Compliance Coordinators.
