Title IX Nondiscrimination Statement

E.D.P. School is committed to equal access to facilities, programs, admission, and employment for all persons. It is the policy of the School to maintain an environment free of discrimination and free of harassment against any person because of race, age, ancestry, color, national origin, religion, creed, service in the uniformed services (as defined in state and federal law), veteran status, sex, sexual orientation, marital or family status, pregnancy, pregnancy-related conditions, mental or physical disability, gender, perceived gender, gender identity, genetic information or political ideas and affiliations. Discriminatory conduct and harassment, as well as relationship violence and sexual misconduct, violates the dignity of individuals, impedes the realization of the School’s educational mission, and will not be tolerated. At E.D.P School, we are committed to maintaining an academic environment that is free from gender
or sexual discrimination so members of the E.D.P. community can fully access and benefit from the
institution’s learning opportunities. (Please note, all pertinent download links can be found by clicking here.)

Title IX and Non-Discrimination Policy 

E.D.P School adheres to all federal, state, and local civil rights laws prohibiting discrimination in employment and education. As a recipient of federal financial assistance for education activities, E.D.P. School is required by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 to ensure that all its education programs and activities do not discriminate on the basis of sex. E.D.P School also prohibits retaliation against any person opposing discrimination or participating in any discrimination investigation or complaint process internal or external to the institution. Sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating and domestic violence and stalking are forms of sex discrimination, which are prohibited under Title IX and by university policy. Harassment or discrimination on the basis of any other classification protected by law is prohibited under university policy. Any associate of the institution, guest or visitor who acts to deny, deprive, or limit the educational, employment, residential or social access, opportunities and/or benefits of any member of the E.D.P School community on the basis of sex or other protected class status, is in violation of the Title IX and NonDiscrimination Policy. Any person may report sex discrimination, age, disability, national origin, race, color, religion, sex, pregnancy, veteran status, or any other classification protected by applicable law, in person, by mail, by telephone, by video or by email, using the contact information listed for the Title IX Coordinator.
