Equal Opportunity & Discrimination Claims
It is the policy of Northern Virginia Community College and the Virginia Community College System to maintain and promote equal employment and educational opportunities without regard to race, sex, color, national origin, marital status, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, political affiliation, or against otherwise qualified persons with disabilities. The policy permits appropriate employment preferences for veterans and specifically prohibits discrimination against veterans.
The Equal Opportunity Officer investigates and responds to complaints of discrimination received by all Northern Virginia Community College faculty, staff, contractors and visitors. For more information, please contact the Equal Opportunity Officer at email@example.com.
Student complaints of discrimination are handled through the Student Grievance Process.
Complaints of sex-based discrimination, sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and sexual or gender-based harassment are governed by the Title IX Policy which also establishes separate procedures that outline reporting options and explain how the College assesses, investigates and resolves reports of such prohibited conduct.
