Affirmative Action Policy and Title IX

Great Basin College is an Affirmative Action/Equal Employment Opportunity (AA/EEO) educational institution. It is guided by the principle that equal opportunity means more than equal employment opportunity and that access to facilities and services shall be available to all people regardless of their race, age, religion, color, sex, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin. This principle is applicable to every member of the GBC/NSHE community, both students and personnel at every level, and to all facilities and services.

Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments prohibits sex discrimination in federally-assisted programs. Specifically, the law reads: “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.” Equal educational opportunity includes admission, access to college activities, facilities, courses, financial assistance, employment, and counseling.

Great Basin College interprets Title IX to include sexual harassment. The College affirms that no person shall, because of sex be denied participation in, or be denied benefits, or be subjected to discrimination in any educational program or activity.

Grievance procedures are clearly defined and available to all students and employees. In keeping with the policy of Great Basin College against unlawful discrimination, all inquiries and complaints of alleged discrimination based on race, age, religion, color, sex, sexual orientation, disability, and national origin should be directed to the following:
