Equal Employment Statement:
Marist College is committed to creating a diverse workforce on our
campus by ensuring that barriers to equal employment opportunity
and upward mobility do not exist here. To this end, the College
will strive to achieve the full and fair participation of
minorities, women, people with disabilities, and any other
protected groups found to be under-represented.
Equal opportunity means employment, development, and promotion of
individuals without consideration of race, color, disability,
religion, age, sex, marital status, national origin, sexual
orientation, or veteran status unless there is a bona fide
occupational requirement which excludes persons in one of these
protected groups. The College will review its employment policies
and procedures to ensure that barriers which may unnecessarily
exclude protected groups are identified and eliminated. The College
will also explore alternative approaches if any policy or practice
is found to have a negative impact on protected groups.
Marist's policy of non-discrimination includes not only employment
practices but also extends to all services and programs provided by
the College. It shall be considered a violation of College policy
for any member of the community to discriminate against any
individual or group with respect to employment or attendance at
Marist College on the basis of race, color, disability, religion,
age, sex, marital status, national origin, sexual orientation,
veteran status, or any other condition established by law.
