Western Technical College supports equity in its educational opportunities for students. This concept serves as a guide for the Board and the staff in making decisions relating to programs and courses as well as the selection of educational equipment, materials and services affecting students and College facilities.
Western Technical College is in full compliance with Titles VI and VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the 1976 Vocation Educational Amendments, Age Discrimination Act of 1975, Wisconsin Statutes 38.23 and the office of Civil Rights Guidelines for the elimination of discrimination in vocational education. In addition to provisions of these laws and regulations, the College will provide protection from discrimination against students in any service, program or facility of the College with regard to race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin, disability/handicap, ancestry, age, sexual orientation, pregnancy, marital status or parental status.
Furthermore, the College has undertaken an affirmative program of action to expand equality of opportunity. Affirmative Action has, as its overall objective, the achievement of a more balanced representation of various minority groups, females and disabled persons in all of our educational programs and services. Remedies and sanctions are provided in the Student Complaint Procedure to address violations of this policy.
