Title IX and Non-Discrimination Notice

San Joaquin Delta Community College District (hereinafter, “District”) adheres to all federal, state, and local civil rights laws prohibiting discrimination, harassment, and retaliation in employment and education. The District shall make all decisions regarding educational opportunities, recruitment, hiring, dismissal, compensation, promotions, and all other terms and conditions of employment without regard to grooming standards, hairstyles, national origin, immigration status, religion, religious dress, age, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, race or ethnicity, color, medical condition, genetic information, ancestry, sexual orientation, marital status, physical or mental disability, pregnancy, military and veteran status, or any other legally protected classification (hereinafter, “protected classifications”).
