(Revised July 2011, Office of the Vice President/Treasurer)
It has been the historic practice at Reed College not to discriminate and Reed admits students of any race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national and ethnic origin, age, gender identity, genetic history, and without regard to disabilities, service in uniformed service, or any other unlawful basis, nor political beliefs, to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to the students at the school. Reed does not consider any of the above attributes in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan program, and athletic and other school-administered programs. Pursuant to Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Title IX of the 1972 Educational Amendment, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), equal opportunity is national policy. Inquiries on the application of Title VI, Title IX, the ADA, and Section 504 may be made to Edwin O. McFarlane, Vice President/Treasurer, Reed College or to the Office for Civil Rights.
The college maintains a strict policy that prohibits harassment in any form prohibited by law.
The selection of new faculty members, and subsequent evaluations, are based upon individual merit and not upon race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, requesting or taking leave protected by law, age, disability, marital status, family relationship, gender identity, association with anyone in a protected class, application for workers compensation benefits, opposition to safety/health hazards, expunged juvenile record, service in uniformed service, genetic history, aiding in a civil or criminal proceeding, good faith reporting of information that the employee believes is evidence of a violation of a state or federal law, or any other unlawful basis, nor upon political beliefs.
