Mid Michigan College actively endeavors to increase diversity, promote equal opportunity, and provide a safe environment within its community. Mid maintains its commitment in providing equal employment opportunities to all employees, applicants, and job seekers through this Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Policy. This Policy adheres to the stipulations of Title VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972, Section 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) of 1990, and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008. Mid is committed to making decisions by use of reasonable standards that are based on each individual’s qualification as they relate to a particular employment action (e.g. hiring, training, promotions). No person shall be discriminated against in employment or experience harassment because of race, color, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, pregnancy, age, sexual orientation, marital or parental status, national origin, citizenship, genetics, disability, military or veteran status, or any other legally-protected status.

Any person, employee, applicant, or governmental agency that has a complaint or concern regarding fair and equitable treatment or who believes that they have been discriminated, harassed, or have knowledge of such conduct, should file a report with the Director of College Compliance & Ethics or the Associate Vice President of Human Resources. Reports may be submitted by using the College’s online reporting system. Diligent effort will be made to conduct a prompt, fair, and impartial investigation in order to reach a fair resolution. If an investigation leads to the determination that this Policy was violated, corrective action will be taken. For detailed information on the College’s Complaint Investigation and Resolution process please see visit the Title IX/Civil Rights webpage.

Under this Policy, no employee or applicant shall be subject to retaliation for using, in good faith, channels available for resolving complaints of misconduct. Retaliation includes but is not limited to: intimidation, threats, harassment, or any other adverse action threatened or taken against any person for filing a complaint, participating in an investigation, or opposing an act or practice prohibited by this Policy or any federal, state, or local equal employment law. Under this Policy, reports of retaliatory action should be brought to the attention of the Associate Vice President of Human Resources.
