Equal Opportunity and Non-Discrimination Policy
Hunter is committed to a policy of equal employment and equal access in its educational programs and activities. Diversity, inclusion, and an environment free from discrimination are central to the mission of the City University of New York.
It is the policy of Hunter to recruit, employ, retain, promote, and provide benefits to employees (including paid and unpaid interns) and to admit and provide services for students without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, ethnicity, ancestry, religion, age, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth and related conditions), sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, marital status, partnership status, disability, genetic information, alienage, citizenship, military or veteran status, status as a victim of domestic violence/stalking/sex offenses, unemployment status, or any other legally prohibited basis in accordance with federal, state and city laws.
It is also the Hunter’s policy to provide reasonable accommodations when appropriate to individuals with disabilities, individuals observing religious practices, employees who have pregnancy or childbirth-related medical conditions, or employees who are victims of domestic violence/stalking/sex offenses.
This Policy also prohibits retaliation for reporting or opposing discrimination, or cooperating with an investigation of a discrimination complaint. Furthermore, any individual who believes that he or she has experienced employment discrimination on account of any of the above identities should immediately contact John T. Rose. Any individual who believes that he or she has experienced any form of discrimination under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 may also contact the US Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights. In addition, Professor Jennifer Samson of the Department of Special Education is the college’s 504/ADA Coordinator. The Vice Presidents, Deans, Directors, Managers and Supervisors share responsibility for ensuring our compliance with these policies and laws.
