Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action

Columbia College is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. The College is committed to recruit, employ, and promote individuals based on job-related qualifications and to engage in good-faith efforts to achieve employment parity when necessary. Columbia College prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, nationality, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, marital or veteran status, the presence of a non-job-related medical condition or disability, or any other legally protected status. Columbia College develops, updates, and implements an Affirmative Action Plan that seeks to identify and rectify any previous hiring or promotion practices that might have resulted in patterns of job discrimination.

Columbia College subscribes to an Affirmative Action Plan that aims to increase the presence of qualified women and members of minority groups among faculty and staff when these groups are identified as being under represented. The plan calls for aggressive recruitment and selection practices to insure equal opportunity and nondiscrimination in employment.
