MICA adheres to all federal, state and local civil rights laws banning discrimination in institutions of higher education. The College will not discriminate against any employee, applicant for employment, student, or applicant for admission on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, pregnancy, religion, creed, ethnicity, national origin (including ancestry), physical or mental disability, age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, perceived identity (including appearance), veteran or military status (including special disabled veteran, Vietnam-era veteran, or recently separated veteran), 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 grievance process on campus or with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or other civil rights agencies.
This policy covers nondiscrimination in employment and in access to educational opportunities. 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 his or her actual or perceived membership in the protected classes listed above is in violation of MICA's policy on nondiscrimination. When brought to the attention of the College, any such discrimination will be appropriately remedied according to the procedures outlined below.
