Nondiscrimination and Diversity Statement
St. Cloud State University will provide equal education and employment opportunities to all persons following the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (CRA), as amended, which prohibits certain forms of discrimination in providing educational programs under Title IX and employment under Title VII. Specifically the CRA prohibits discrimination based on race, color, national origin, sex, or religion. Federal law also prohibits discrimination based on age, disability, pregnancy and certain Veteran status. The State of Minnesota further prohibits discrimination based on marital status, sexual orientation, receipt of public assistance or membership on a human rights commission.
In compliance with the law and as an integral part of the mission of this university, St. Cloud State University is committed to providing equal education and employment opportunities to all students and employees regardless of race, color, creed, sex, age, religion, marital status, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, and other mentioned immutable characteristics. To carry out this commitment, SCSU not only prohibits discrimination in policy and process, but takes affirmative steps to prevent sexual and discriminatory harassment in the workplace and classroom. SCSU students or employees with concerns or uncertainty about possible harassment or discrimination are encouraged to contact Ellyn L. Bartges, who is the university Designated Officer, Title IX Coordinator/Officer and the Equity & Affirmative Action Officer (phone 308-5123 or via email at email@example.com). At www.stcloudstate.edu/affirmativeaction/policies, you will find SCSU policies and procedures pertaining to discrimination, harassment and sexual assault, as well as information on resources available to you.
