To establish and define the College policy concerning fair employment practices and to ensure equal employment opportunity to all College employees and applicants for employment.


Centenary College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, national or ethnic origin, religion, gender, age, marital status, disability, or sexual orientation, in the administration of its educational policies, recruitment or admission of students, scholarship, grant or loan programs, athletic or other College-administered programs, employment procedures, training programs, promotion policies or other related personnel practices.

Recruitment for regular staff positions shall be based on an open and public search process. Appropriate efforts shall be made to encourage the candidacy of members of racial and ethnic minorities, women, and members of other groups which are underrepresented in the College staff. A search committee representing a diversity of campus participants shall be appointed to review applications and nominations for positions and make recommendations to the hiring officer. The Finance & Administration Office shall be responsible for ensuring that these guidelines are followed.

The College prohibits any retaliatory action against an employee for opposing a practice which he/she believes to be discriminatory, including the filing of an internal grievance or a charge with a state or federal civil rights enforcement agency.
