Sandhills Community College is committed to the elimination of all discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, or disability.
While aware that the college bears a significant responsibility for aggressively pursuing an equal opportunity policy designed to ensure the employment of qualified men and women, Sandhills Community College is also firmly committed to day-by-day policies which ensure that students, faculty, and staff members of any race, sex, religion, national origin, or disability will receive fair, courteous, and congenial treatment commensurate with the atmosphere of the college as a whole. Denial of such treatment to any individual on the Sandhills’ campus will not be tolerated.
In terms of hiring practices, the college is committed to providing equal opportunity in all its employment practices, which ensure that no person who is qualified shall be excluded from employment on the basis of race, sex, age, religion, national origin, or disability. In addition, the college has established the goal that its workforce will collectively reflect the diversity of the minority labor market in its service areas of Moore and Hoke Counties. This goal has been approved by the trustees of the college. The president of the college shall oversee and monitor the implementation of this goal through the director of human resources in cooperation with the faculty and staff.
Equal employment opportunity is viewed as an integral part of the mission and purpose of Sandhills Community College. The college is dedicated to the upward mobility and advancement of all people within its reach and seeks to comply with all federal, state, and local statutes, regulations, and orders, including those which promote equal protection and equal opportunity for students, employees, and applicants.
