Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity
True learning requires free and open debate with civil discourse and tolerance of many different individuals and ideas. We are preparing students to live and work in a world that speaks with many voices and from many cultures. Tolerance is not only essential to learning; it is an essential to be learned. The Institute is built upon these values and will act vigorously to defend them. We will maintain an environment conducive to teaching and learning that is free from intimidation for all.
In its resolve to create this positive environment, Tysons Institute will ensure compliance with federal and state laws protecting against discrimination. In addition, the Institute has adopted policies that both emphasize these existing protections and supplement them with protections against discrimination that are not available under either federal or state law.
Federal and state laws provide separate prohibitions against discrimination that is based on race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin or ancestry, age, or disability. State law additionally prohibits discrimination that is based on sexual orientation, arrest or conviction record, marital status, pregnancy, parental status, military status, or veteran status. The application of specific state prohibitions on discrimination may be influenced by an individual's status as an employee or student.
The Institute’s policies create additional protections that prohibit harassment on the basis of cultural background and ethnicity. Inquiries concerning this policy may be directed to HR office by phone at 703-506-1300 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
