Harassment and Human Rights Policy and Titles VI, VII and IX

The OT Program adheres to the College policies and procedures for processing allegations of harassment. These polices can be found in the College Student Handbook. Emory & Henry College affirms its commitment to maintain for all employees and students an environment that is fair, humane, and respectful. Behavior that is contrary to such an environment will not be tolerated. This behavior includes harassment, including sexual harassment, as well as discrimination based on race, religion, gender, disability, national origin, age, or sexual orientation. Some of these acts are prohibited by both federal and state criminal and anti-discrimination laws, including Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, Title VI and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as amended, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Virginia Human Rights Act.

Emory & Henry College also prohibits and will not tolerate such behavior of any member of the community toward another member. Any person accepting admission to or employment at Emory & Henry College agrees to abide by this policy.
