Equal Employment Opportunity

Parkland College is committed to diversity, inclusiveness, excellence and professionalism.  An EEO Representative serves on all hiring committees and has the essential function of ensuring that the College maintains its commitment to a fair and unbiased search process.  This commitment is central to Parkland’s employment procedures for new or vacant positions as they arise within the College.

It is the public policy at Parkland, as an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) employer, to assure for all persons freedom from discrimination because of:

  • Race/color
  • Sex, gender, gender expression
  • National origin religion
  • Age
  • Veteran status (including Vietnam veteran)
  • Marital status
  • Ancestry
  • Disability
  • Sexual orientation
This is with respect to all aspects of employment, contractual services, and construction of college facilities.

The purpose of Policy 4.01 is to ensure consistency in hiring practices throughout the College and to provide specific instruction to all who are involved in the hiring process.  This policy supports Parkland’s core values of multiculturalism, and fairness and just treatment. Research has demonstrated that all students, staff, and faculty benefit from learning and working in a diverse environment. This is fundamental in the college’s commitment to diversity in its search procedures and hiring practices.
