Notice of Nondiscrimination

University of Alaska Southeast

The University of Alaska Board of Regents has adopted the following Nondiscrimination and Title IX Compliance Policy (P01.02.020):

It is the policy of the board that in accordance with federal and state law, illegal discrimination against any individual because of race, color, religion, national origin, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status, physical or mental disability, marital status, pregnancy or parenthood is prohibited. Decisions affecting individuals shall be based on the individual’s qualifications, abilities and performance, as appropriate.

The Board of Regents of the University of Alaska System affirms its commitment to a safe and healthy educational and work environment in which educational programs and activities are free of discrimination on the basis of sex. The board further affirms its commitment to respond appropriately to sexual harassment and sexual violence, in accordance with applicable law as amended from time to time.

The full policy can be reviewed at the University of Alaska Board of Regents website.

Board policy is pursuant to Title VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Civil Rights Act of 1991; Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972; Executive Order 11246 and Executive Order 11375, as amended; Equal Pay Act of 1963; Age Discrimination Acts of 1967 and 1975; Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974; Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and 1992; the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008; Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008; Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978; Immigration Reform & Control Act of 1986; Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973; Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973; Section 508 as amended by the Workforce Investment Act of 1998; Alaska Statutes 14.18.010, 18.80.200, and 18.80.220 which guarantees equal opportunity to individuals and protected classes within our society.

This policy affects employment policies and actions, as well as the delivery of educational services at all levels and facilities of the University. Further, the University's objective of ensuring equal opportunity will be met by taking affirmative action: i.e., making intensified, goal-oriented efforts to substantially increase the participation of groups where their representation is less than proportionate to their availability; providing reasonable accommodations to employees and students with disabilities; and ensuring that employment opportunities are widely disseminated to agencies and organizations that service underrepresented protected classes.
