Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action

Macomb Community College, as an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer, complies with all applicable state and federal laws regarding anti-discrimination, equal opportunity and affirmative action.

Macomb Community College believes that no person should be denied the opportunity to attain their fullest potential on the basis of unlawful discrimination. Macomb Community College has established a goal to build a community that respects and welcomes all persons and provides equal opportunity and access to education, programs, employment, facilities and services to the public in a manner consistent with state and federal law. In furtherance of that goal, it is the policy of Macomb Community College that unlawful discrimination against any person on the basis of race, sex (including sexual harassment), sexual orientation, age, height, weight, disability, color, religion, creed, national origin or ancestry, marital status, familial status, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by state or federal law, is prohibited.

Through the programs set forth in its Affirmative Action Plan, together with the resolution adopted by the Board of Trustees of the College on June 9, 1981 directing the Administration to take certain specific affirmative action to effect full equal employment opportunity as outlined in the resolution, the College undertakes to comply fully with all applicable federal, state, and local laws relating to equal employment opportunity, affirmative action, and non-discrimination in public services.
