Equal Opportunity Violations
Excerpt from Student Handbook:
Darton College is committed to a policy that ensures the fulfillment of equal opportunity without unlawful discrimination for all applicants for employment or student status. This policy is administered without regard to race, creed, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, veteran status, or handicap.
The College complies with the requirements of Executive Order 11 246 as amended; Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended (38 USC 201 2); Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended; Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (Title II) and their implementing regulations.
Students who feel that any of their rights under these regulations have been violated are entitled to Due Process. The procedures for seeking redress under these regulations are as follows: (1) if at all possible, the student should first consult and work with the individual involved; (2) if the student cannot obtain satisfactory results from such a conference, he should then file a complaint in writing with the Equal Opportunity Officer.
Any complaints dealing with any type of discrimination may be addressed to the College’s Equal Opportunity Officer who is located in the Technology (A) Building.
The Equal Opportunity Officer is:
Shalonda Heard, M.Ed.
