Anti-Discrimination & Anti-Harassment Policy

At Northern Technical University, we are committed to fostering an inclusive and respectful learning and working environment. To uphold these values, we have implemented comprehensive Anti-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment policies. These policies are designed to ensure that all members of our university community are treated with dignity and respect, free from any form of discrimination or harassment.

Anti-Discrimination Policy:
Our Anti-Discrimination Policy prohibits discrimination based on race, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, or any other protected characteristic as defined by applicable law. This policy applies to all aspects of university life, including admissions, employment, academic programs, and extracurricular activities.

We are committed to promoting diversity and inclusion on campus, fostering an environment where everyone’s contributions and perspectives are valued. Any acts of discrimination are taken seriously, and appropriate measures will be taken to address and rectify such incidents.

Anti-Harassment Policy:
Our Anti-Harassment Policy is designed to ensure that all members of our university community can work and study in an environment free from harassment of any kind. Harassment includes but is not limited to verbal, written, visual, or physical conduct that creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment for individuals or groups based on their protected characteristics.

Harassment can take various forms, such as offensive jokes, slurs, derogatory comments, gestures, or any unwelcome conduct that targets an individual or group. This policy applies to interactions on campus, during university-sponsored events, and online platforms associated with the university.

Reporting and Investigation: We encourage individuals who have experienced or witnessed discrimination or harassment to report such incidents promptly. Reports can be made to the designated office responsible for handling these matters. Reports can be filed in person, via email, or through an online reporting system, ensuring confidentiality and privacy throughout the investigation process.

Investigations into reported incidents will be conducted promptly and impartially. Appropriate action will be taken based on the investigation’s findings, which may include disciplinary measures, training, or other interventions to prevent future incidents.

Educational Programs: To further promote awareness and understanding of discrimination and harassment issues, the university conducts educational programs, workshops, and training sessions. These initiatives aim to foster a culture of respect, inclusivity, and empathy among all members of the university community.

At Northern Technical University, we are committed to upholding our Anti-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment policies to create an environment where every individual feels safe, valued, and empowered to reach their full potential. Together, we can build a stronger and more united community that celebrates diversity and respects the rights and dignity of all its members.
