Statement of Non-Discrimination
Pathways College is firmly committed to being an equal opportunity organization and fostering non-discriminatory practices regarding admissions, administrative policies, programs offered and employment on the basis of race, ancestry, color, religion, creed, age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, citizenship status, gender identity or status, or veteran, or any other basis protected by federal, state, or local law, ordinance or regulation. Pathways College employees and students are prohibited from engaging in discrimination and harassment, including sex discrimination and sexual harassment. In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended and Section 504, Pathways College provides qualified applicants and students who have disabilities with reasonable accommodations that do not impose undue hardship.
Academic freedom allows faculty the rights of inquiry and expression and allows students the freedom to learn. However, with that freedom comes responsibility. Faculty members are encouraged to pursue excellence in their field while maintaining intellectual honesty. The college arena is not the place for personal agendas. As citizens, faculty are free from intellectual censorship and discipline. However, as scholars, they should remember that Pathways College may be judged by what they say and do. Faculty should act professionally, respect opinions of others, and take care when expressing privately held views.
Faculty members are to show respect to all students as individuals, making effort to evaluate students based on merit, affording students the right to diverse thought, according to the Pathways College Diversity Statement.
