SCI-Arc Equal Opportunity, Harassment, And Nondiscrimination Policy

SCI-Arc promotes an open and ethical environment in which to work, teach, and study. SCI-Arc expects all members of the SCI-Arc community to uphold the val­ues of honesty, respect, trust, tolerance, and civility in dealing with one another.

SCI-Arc adheres to all federal and state civil rights laws banning discrimination in institutions of higher education. The Institution will not discriminate against any student, applicant for admission, employee, applicant for employment, vendors, or contractors, on the basis of race, religion, color, ethnicity, national origin (including ancestry), citizenship status, marital or familial status, physical or mental disability, medical condition, pregnancy, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, veteran or military status, predisposing genetic characteristics or any other protected category under applicable local, state or federal law, includ­ing protections for those opposing discrimination or participating in any resolution process within SCI-Arc or within the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or other human rights agencies.

This policy covers nondiscrimination in employment and in access to educational opportunities including, but not limited to admissions, financial assistance, edu­cation programs, academic counseling, activities, or employment. Therefore, any member of the campus community, guest or visitor who acts to deny, deprive or limit the educational, employment, residential and/or social access, benefits and/ or opportunities of any member of the campus community on the basis of their ac­tual or perceived membership in the protected classes listed above is in violation of SCI-Arc's policy on nondiscrimination. When brought to the attention of the In­stitution, any such discrimination will be appropriately addressed.

SCI-Arc does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational, extracurricular, or other programs or in the context of employment. Sexual misconduct, including sexual harassment, is a form of sex discrimination that unjustly deprives a person of equal treatment and is prohibited by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. No person shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. .

Accommodating Disabilities

SCI-Arc complies with federal regulations concerning access for physically chal­lenged students. Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate individual needs. Applicants with disabilities who request special accommodation in the application and pre-admission process should provide notification and make a written accommodations request to the admissions office. Applicants who do not need accommodations during the application process, but who anticipate the need for accommodations during their education, need not submit a request for accom­modations until after admission to the Institute.
