This policy applies to Florida Southern College faculty, employees, students, visitors, applicants, and contractors in a manner consistent with applicable federal and state laws, regulations, ordinances, orders and rules, and College policies, procedures, and processes. The College ascribes to equal opportunity practices and admits all of its students to the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or available to students and employees at the College.
The College has adopted a procedure for the purpose of resolving discrimination complaints. Katherine Pawlak has been designated to handle inquiries regarding non-discrimination policies.
