Governance

General Principles

We aim to provide a fair, equitable and productive work environment for all employees. This policy seeks to support the achievement of this goal by providing a transparent and consistent process for resolving grievances.

Equal Opportunity Employer and Diversity

As an equal opportunity employer, the College does not discriminate in its employment decisions on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender/sex, sexual orientation, age, military status, disability, genetic information, or on any other basis that would be in violation of any applicable federal, state, or local law.

The College strongly values employee diversity.  We welcome persons of varying ethnicities, races, cultures, national origins, ages, political views, religions, genders, sexual orientations, and economic backgrounds.  We welcome individuals regardless of disabilities.  The College encourages innovative ideas and creative accomplishments and wishes to broaden and deepen scholarly discourse and to encourage students to become active participants in society.  The College is committed to its goals of equal employment opportunities for all individuals.

Americans with Disabilities Act

The College will not illegally discriminate against an individual with a protected disability in regard to job application procedures; in the hiring, advancement, or discharge of employees; in employee compensation or job training; or in other terms, conditions, and privileges of employment.  The College will provide reasonable accommodations to qualified individuals with disabilities unless doing so would cause undue hardship, as mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act, and any implementing regulations.  If you have a disability and require a reasonable workplace accommodation, it is your responsibility to contact Human Resources Manager.

Sexual and Other Unlawful Harassment

The College is committed to providing a work environment that is free from all forms of discrimination and conduct that can be considered harassing, coercive, or disruptive, including sexual harassment.  Actions, words, jokes, or comments based on an individual’s sex, race, color, national origin, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or any legally protected characteristic will not be tolerated.

Academic Freedom

The Board of Trustees (the “Board”) of the Medisend College of Biomedical Engineering Technology (the “College“) recognizes that the academic freedom and security of its academic staff is indispensable to the success of the College in fulfilling its obligations to its students and society. The Board, therefore, adopts and approves the following Statement of Academic Freedom and Security and the principles set forth therein, which shall be implemented and adhered to at the College.
