Campus Equity & Compliance

The President of Wiregrass Georgia Technical College (WGTC) is committed to ensuring an environment for all students and employees that is fair, humane, and respectful; an environment that supports and rewards students and employees on the basis of relevant considerations and is free from illegal or inappropriate conduct. Wiregrass Georgia Technical College expects standards of professional behavior that exceed those minimally prescribed by law. As such, WGTC is an equal opportunity institution. The college administration does not tolerate discrimination on the basis of race, color, creed, national or ethnic origin, gender (including Sexual Harassment), religion, disability, age, political affiliation or belief, disabled veteran, veteran of the Vietnam Era, or citizenship status (except in those special circumstances permitted or mandated by law). This encompasses the operation of all educational programs and activities, including admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic and other college administered programs, including any Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA) Title I financed programs. This also encompasses the employment of personnel and contracting for goods and services. (For the full Statement of Equal Opportunity, please click here, or refer to the Student Handbook, Student Catalog, Employment Page of the WGTC website, the Online Job Center, the WGTC Policy Manual, or Course Syllabi).

Within its policy manual, WGTC maintains a grievance procedure for addressing discrimination, which meets the federal requirements for compliance with Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Retaliation in any form against individuals bringing grievances is prohibited and will subject the offender to disciplinary action. In many instances it is also a violation of state and federal law.

Campus Equity & Compliance Office

To ensure an environment conducive to learning and free from harassment, an Office of Campus Equity & Compliance (CEC) has been established and a diverse eight-person, inter-campus team has been appointed. The CEC Team’s core mission is to identify proactive steps in promoting the realization of equal opportunity through a continuing program of specific practices and training designed to ensure the full realization of equity. Under the direction of the Title IX Coordinator, and ADA & Section 504 Coordinator, the CEC Team will ensure that initial information and training, as well as continued publicity and education, is provided to students, faculty, and staff. (For a copy of the Unlawful Harassment Policy and Complaint Procedures, please refer to the WGTC Policy Manual)
