Equal Opportunity Policy

Eastern West Virginia Community & Technical College provides equal opportunities to all prospective and current members of the student body, faculty, and staff on the basis of individual qualifications and merit without regard to race, color, sex, religion, age, handicap, national origin, or sexual orientation.

Equal Opportunity, Non-Discrimination, and Affirmative Action

The Eastern West Virginia Community & Technical College Board of Governors (Board) is committed to equal opportunity and non-discrimination for all employees, students, prospective students and applicants for employment. This commitment applies to all qualified persons without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, disability, age, or any other basis which is proscribed by law, in employment or in the application, admission, participation, access and treatment of persons in instructional programs and activities.
 
The Board concurs with the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) that such a commitment to equal opportunity and nondiscrimination “ensures and recommits to open door access, the cornerstone of the community college mission. This fundamental commitment is critical to our democracy’s cherished principle of equal opportunity for every individual and to the social and economic vitality of the nation.” The College will take affirmative action measures to insure the continued entry of qualified minorities, women, veterans and the disabled, as defined by law, into the staff and student bodies. Infractions should be reported to the Human Resources Administrator.
