Nondiscrimination and Equal Opportunity

The Community College of Baltimore County does not discriminate against any individual for reason of race, sex, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, age, sexual orientation or conditions of handicap in the admission and treatment of students, educational programs and activities, scholarship and loan programs, hiring of faculty and staff, or any terms and conditions of employment.

CCBC recognizes the value of a diverse workforce that is reflective of the students and of the community we serve, and as such, the college is committed to welcoming, respecting and embracing the differences and similarities of our employees and our students. We acknowledge the richness of multiculturalism and diversity. We hold each member of the college community responsible and accountable for fostering a climate of acceptance, inclusion, respect and dignity of all persons.

Nondiscrimination in hiring and employment practices

CCBC is committed to ensuring equal opportunity and nondiscrimination in all of its hiring and employment practices. All applicants for employment, promotion and/or transfer will be assessed based on their education, training, experience and qualifications. Applicants and employees will not be discriminated against based on race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, ancestry, veteran status, disability, sexual orientation, or any other basis protected by law.

This applies to all terms, conditions and privileges of employment including, but not limited to, hiring, placement, promotion, demotion, layoff, recall, transfer, leave of absence, compensation, training, and referrals for employment.

Work environment free from discrimination and harassment

CCBC is committed to providing a work environment free from discrimination and/or harassment of any nature including, but not limited to, racial, religious, sexual orientation, age, gender, national origin, ancestral, veteran status, disability or any other type of harassment. Harassment is unwanted verbal, physical, or visual conduct relating to an individual’s race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, national origin, ancestry, veteran status, or disability. This behavior will not be condoned or tolerated by CCBC.

Sexual harassment
Sexual harassment includes unwelcome sexual advances or visual, verbal, or physical conduct of a sexual nature which creates an offensive, intimidating or hostile work environment. Sexual harassment includes requests for sexual favors, sexual comments, suggestions, jokes, and the display of sexually suggestive pictures, calendars or other objects.

Compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
CCBC is committed to complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and all other applicable federal and state regulations, to ensure equal access to employment opportunities for qualified applicants and employees with disabilities. A qualified individual with a disability is anyone who has the skills, experience, and education required for the position and who can perform the job’s essential functions, with or without reasonable accommodation. CCBC is committed to making reasonable accommodations (reasonable changes in the work environment or in the manner in which duties are performed) for qualified individuals with a disability, unless doing so would present an undue hardship to the college. Undue hardships include accommodations that are unduly costly and/or those which fundamentally alter the nature or operation of the college.
