Recognizing the benefits of an inclusive and culturally diverse environment, and taking into account LaGuardia Community College’s unique location and student population, the mission of the Office of Compliance and Diversity is to educate and develop a workforce which embraces cultural competence, intersectionality, and aides in ensuring compliance with Federal, State, Municipal, and CUNY Policies on Sexual Misconduct and Equal Opportunity and Non-Discrimination.
LaGuardia Community College’s Office of Compliance and Diversity is an integral department in the Office of the President. LaGuardia Community College and the City University of New York are committed through policy and practice to recruit, employ, retain, promote, and provide benefits to employees and to admit and provide services for students without discriminating on the basis of actual or perceived race, color, creed, national origin, ethnicity, ancestry, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, marital status, partnership status, disability, genetic information, alienage, citizenship, military or veteran status, pregnancy, status as a victim of domestic violence/stalking/sex offenses, unemployment status, credit history, caregiver or familial status, prior record of arrest or conviction, or any other legally prohibited basis in accordance with federal, state and city laws. We believe in a policy of non-discrimination, and as an educational institution, maintaining best practices and relevant programs to assure compliance with federal, state and city laws as well as University guidelines.
The Affirmative Action Program is an ongoing program that operates to assure compliance with federal legislation and University guidelines in regards to non-discrimination. We encourage positive practices and ensure equitable disciplinary procedures for any member of the college community who engages in harassment on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, or disability, or any individual that reports such an incident.
