Morningside University believes in and promotes non-discrimination, and follows its obligation to prohibit unlawful discrimination in all forms. It is our policy and practice to promote equal opportunities without regard to age, sex, religion, creed, race, color, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, genetic information (employment only), national origin, or other characteristics protected by state and federal law (“protected and immutable characteristics”). This basic philosophy applies not only in searching for new employees but also in the recruiting of students. It is believed that there should be no discrimination on the basis of these protected and immutable characteristics in the selection or placement of employees, as well as in administration, supervision, compensation, training, promotions, and termination of employment. Every other practice or procedure, both in the areas of academics and business, must subscribe to the intent of this basic philosophy which is inherent in Judeo-Christian principles.
The University is committed to providing all of its students, faculty, staff, and visitors with equal access to its programs, activities, and facilities. In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the University has made modifications to some of its buildings and grounds and will provide reasonable auxiliary aids and modifications in order to allow such equal access to the regular programs, activities, and degree objectives offered by the University, for qualified individuals with disabilities.
Persons wishing additional information about this policy or assistance to accommodate individual needs should contact the Equal Employment Opportunity Officer at the Business Office. The telephone number is 712-274-5128.
