Commitment to Non-Discrimination

Curry College is committed to providing equal opportunity in employment and education to all employees, students, and applicants.  No employee, student or applicant shall be discriminated against or harassed on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, age, ethnic or national origin or ancestry, veteran status, physical or mental disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, genetic information, veteran or military status, membership in Uniformed Services, or any category protected by applicable state and federal laws. Similarly, Curry College is committed to making its programs and campus accessible to its visitors and compliant with all applicable non-discrimination laws.

Sexual harassment, including sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination that is illegal under both federal and Massachusetts state law, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Massachusetts General Laws chapter 151B, § 4, Massachusetts General Laws chapter 151C, § 2, and Massachusetts General Laws chapter 214, § 1C.
