Monmouth College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national origin. The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces, among other statutes, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VI protects people from discrimination based on race, color, or national origin in education programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance. Title VI states:
No person shall, on the grounds of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal assistance.
It is important for every member of our campus community understand the Policies and Procedures prohibiting Title VI Race, Color, and National Origin Discrimination. Examples of discrimination include, but not limited to, treating people differently because of some discriminate factor and jokes and harassment that make someone feel uncomfortable.
