Nondiscrimination

Nondiscrimination Policy - Student

It is the policy of the college to maintain an academic environment free of discrimination, including harassment. Discrimination, harassment, and retaliation on the basis of race, color, national, or ethnic origin, sex, disability, or age are prohibited in the college's programs and activities. If you believe you are a victim of discrimination, harassment, and/or retaliation, you may contact the VP of administrative services at 901-572-2592, Room 244A in the Main Campus building, and/or file a complaint using the college's grievance procedures. Information on the grievance procedures can be found in the Student Handbook, Faculty & Staff Handbook, and on the college intranet and website.

The Section 504/ADA Coordinator (Room 101, Science Building) is the designated official responsible for the college's compliance efforts under the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The coordinator ensures that the college's facilities, programs, and services are accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities. Students who have accessibility questions or who need accommodations should contact the Section 504/ADA Coordinator, Room 101 in the Science Building, at 901-572-2570 or by sending an e-mail to disability.accommodations@bchs.edu. Employees or visitors who have questions should contact the VP of administrative services, Room 244A in the Main Campus building, 901-572-2592.

Equal Opportunity Employer

It is our philosophy to treat all employees fairly and with respect. Baptist College of Health Sciences (Baptist College) is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and as such will not tolerate discrimination in the workplace with regard to an individual's age, race, color, religion, creed, sex/gender, pregnancy, national origin, mental or physical disability, genetic information, marital or veteran status, or any other category protected under applicable federal, state, or local laws. The college supports and adheres to all applicable state and federal regulations that prohibit discrimination relative to the terms, conditions, or privileges of employment. Accordingly, discrimination in all terms, privileges, or conditions of employment, including but not limited to recruiting, hiring, placement, training, transfer, promotion, rates of pay, and other compensation, is strictly prohibited by Baptist College. Any person employed by the college who has experienced, witnessed, or has knowledge of any form of discrimination based on the above mentioned categories should make a complaint to their immediate supervisor, a member of the management team, and/or the VP of administrative services. Complaints of discrimination will be promptly and thoroughly investigated by the executive director of administrative services (1003 Monroe Avenue, Memphis, TN 38104, 901-572-2592).
