Affirmative Action Policy

Middlebury College strives to create a diverse and inclusive community that fosters respect and engagement of difference, recognizing that such a community is better able to provide a rich, varied educational environment.

It is the policy of Middlebury College to prohibit discrimination in employment, or in admission or access to its educational or extracurricular programs, activities, or facilities, on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, marital status, place of birth, service in the armed forces of the United States, or against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability. Retaliation against any employee for filing or supporting a complaint of discrimination or harassment in violation of this policy is prohibited.

Middlebury College maintains an Affirmative Action Plan, and commits to good faith and lawful efforts to correct any under-representation or under-utilization that has been identified by the College as warranting such action. The Chief Diversity Officer has been designated the Affirmative Action Officer for the College. Inquiries concerning the application of federal and state laws and regulations should be referred to the Human Resources Office.
