Founded by an early Presbyterian missionary, College of the Ozarks is an interdenominational Christian, four-year Work College. Its decidedly Christian nature is reflected by full membership in the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.
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:
