Discrimination Action and Discipline Procedure

Antioch University Los Angeles reaffirms that it is the intent of the institution to create an environment free from discrimination

It is the policy of the University not to discriminate against and to provide equal employment opportunity to all qualified persons without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, disability, veteran status, or any other protected classification. It is the policy of the University to analyze all areas of its employment process to further the principles of equal opportunity employment.

Students who feel they have been subject to such discrimination have several options. The student may choose to talk informally with the person perpetrating the discrimination in the hopes of stopping the behavior. The student may choose to discuss the issue with an AULA faculty or staff member. An AULA employee with whom a student speaks about an act of discrimination is legally required to inform the University administration. In addition, the student may contact the Provost/CEO directly and may file a formal complaint. The Provost will respond to the complaint promptly and equitably. The rights of confidentiality of all parties will be respected in so far as possible. There will be no reprisal or retaliation against individuals for bringing complaints of discrimination or reprisal against any individual accused and found not in violation of this policy.

An individual found in violation will be subject to appropriate sanctions depending on the circumstances, from a warning up to and including dismissal from the University and/or termination of employment. (See Discrimination Action and Discipline Procedure.)
