Florida Tech, a private educational institution, is committed to the principle of equal opportunity for all qualified persons, welcomes students of all backgrounds and takes pride in the diversity of its faculty and staff. It assures students of access to all the privileges, programs and activities generally accorded and made available to the university.
Florida Tech strongly supports affirmative action principles and does not discriminate on the basis of creed, religion, national origin or ancestry, age, race, color, martial status, protected veteran status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation or disability in the administration of its educational programs, admissions policies, financial aid programs, athletics, co-curricular activities or other college administered programs. Any adverse action or personnel action or other act of discrimination, based on the above may be the basis for filing a complaint of discrimination. Any student, applicant for employment or employee at Florida Tech, who believes that he or she has been discriminated against, may file a complaint of discrimination.
Students are encouraged to use the formal university chain of supervision (i.e., the Office of the Dean of Students, the instructor, the academic unit/office chairperson and/or appropriate academic dean) to seek relief or redress before filing a complaint of discrimination. Employees may bring complaints to their supervisor or the Office of Human Resources.
