Rockford University is committed to being an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Non-Discrimination:  The University adheres to all federal and state civil rights laws banning discrimination in institutions of higher education including Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and the Illinois Human Rights Act.  The University will not discriminate against any employee, applicant for employment, student or applicant for admission on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, pregnancy, ethnicity, national origin (including ancestry), citizenship status, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, veteran or military status (including special disabled veteran, Vietnam-era veteran, or recently separated veteran), predisposing genetic characteristics or any other protected category under applicable local, state or federal law, including protections for those opposing discrimination or participating in any resolution process within the University or with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or other human rights agencies.

This Statement covers non-discrimination in employment and in access to educational opportunities.  Therefore, any member of the University community, guest or visitor who acts to deny, deprive or limit the educational, employment, residential and/or social access, benefits and/or opportunities of any member of the campus community on the basis of their actual or perceived membership in the protected classes listed above is in violation of University policy on non-discrimination.  When brought to the attention of the University, any such discrimination will be appropriately remedied by the University according to its procedures.

The Title IX Coordinator is available to students and employees as an immediate resource for non-discrimination issues.
