Jefferson College wants to make sure that everyone has equal access to education, and can learn in a supportive environment. In order to make sure that our campus is providing our best opportunities, we have several avenues for students, faculty and staff, to access resources and support:

You Should Know:

  • Diversity Statement-Jefferson College is a community leader dedicated to supporting and promoting diversity through opportunities and experiences that foster a culture of respect, inclusiveness, and understanding for everyone in the campus community, to engage in a diverse world.

  • Non-Discrimination Policy

  • Title IX-Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 states "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied benefit of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance."
