In complying with the letter and spirit of applicable state and federal laws, such as titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, The Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and The Americans with Disabilities Act and ADA Amendments, and in pursuing Macalester College's own goals of diversity and inclusion, College employees shall not discriminate on the grounds of sex, gender identity, race, color, national origin, age, religion, disability, marital status, membership or activity in a local commission dealing with discrimination issues, family genetics and medical history, veteran status, sexual orientation, and status with regard to public assistance in employment policies and practices, education, and all other areas of the College. This policy applies to all employment practices and terms and conditions of employment, including but not limited to promotions, transfers, compensation, terminations, training and participation in College sponsored benefits or programs.
This policy addresses all forms of sexual discrimination, including sexual assault and harassment. Macalester College does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational, extracurricular, athletic, or other programs or in the context of admissions or employment. Sex discrimination is prohibited by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, a federal law that provides that: "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." Macalester College, as an educational community, will promptly and equitably respond to all reports of sexual misconduct in order to eliminate the misconduct, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects on any individual or the community.
