The Board of Trustees of Carroll Community College reaffirms its
commitment to the belief in the intrinsic value of the individual and
his/her right to be judged upon the merits of abilities and actions
alone; provision of maximum employment opportunity based on the system
and the capacity of the potential employee to meet those needs and
without regard to any other factors; and provision of maximum
educational opportunity for all students with special attention to time
schedules, locations, costs and financial support, counseling, student
activities, remedial assistance, and other factors, assuring the
accessibility of such opportunity to all. In the conduct of the official
business and day-to-day operations of the Carroll Community College,
the Board of Trustees will not tolerate discrimination against any
member of the student body, faculty, or staff upon any unlawful basis or
upon any other basis not related to that person’s eligibility or
qualifications for participation in College programs, services,
activities, and employment.
The Board further states its intent to pursue a vigorous program to
expedite the recruitment, hiring, training, development, and promotion
of employees and the recruitment, placement, counseling and teaching of
students without regard to factors of race, color, religion, sex,
national origin, age, disability, and sexual orientation.
Further, the Board states its intent to pursue this program, not only
in full compliance with pertinent legislation, but in a spirit of
outreach and affirmation, accepting fully its charge to improve the
quality of life for all within its area of influence.
The Board, further, instructs the President to plan for, implement,
and report periodically on an active program to fulfill this commitment.
