Non Discrimination Policy and Procedure


College of the Ozarks subscribes to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 and is committed to a policy of nondiscrimination on the basis of age, color, handicap, race, sex and national origin in all of its programs and offerings. On matters of employment, the College relies on its exemption from Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Missouri Human Rights Act as a religious educational institution. Inquiries regarding nondiscrimination policies should be directed to the college compliance officer.

Students who wish to report discrimination of any kind should file a complaint with the Dean of Students and follow the Complaint Procedures set out in the Title IX Policy and Procedures (p. 6). The Dean of Students or a designee (the “Investigating Officer”) will investigate the complaint following the Complaint Resolution Procedures set out in the College’s Title IX Policy and Procedures (p. 17). A student may appeal the written report preponed by the Investigating Officer set forth in the Disciplinary Appeals Procedure (xi).
