College Affirmative Action Statement

Community College of Philadelphia is committed to the principles of equal employment and equal educational opportunity for all persons without regard to race, color, ancestry, creed, national origin, age, sexual preference, religion, sex, disability or status as a disabled veteran or veteran of the Vietnam Era, except where gender is a bona fide occupational requirement or where disability is a bona fide occupational disqualification.

Community College of Philadelphia is committed to achieving a diverse work-force reflective of the communities it serves. This diversity will be accomplished through the College’s Affirmative Action Plan and practices, which encourage employees to develop their capabilities as part of careers at the College.

The College is committed to an outreach program designed to make information about employment opportunities known to diverse communities and to a welcoming environment where diversity is a source of institutional strength and advancement.

This statement is founded on the firm belief that fulfillment of employment and educational objectives must be a function of each individual’s abilities. Successful attainment of affirmative action goals and support plans are considered essential to the fundamental mission of Community College of Philadelphia. In making this statement, the College recognizes both a moral and legal responsibility.
