Hendrix College strives to maintain an environment free from discrimination and harassment, where members of the Hendrix Community treat each other with respect, dignity and courtesy. The College adheres to the principle of equal educational and employment opportunity without regard to age, race, color, religion, gender, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, genetic information, or national origin. Any member of the community who believes they have experienced discrimination or misconduct that violates Hendrix College Interim Policy Prohibiting Discrimination should report that conduct to any Official With Authority (OWA) in this policy. Reports of discrimination or misconduct will be investigated in a manner that is prompt, thorough, equitable, impartial and fair to all parties involved.
The OWA who receives the initial report will review the information (with other officials as appropriate) and determine if a policy violation is alleged to have occurred.
The College encourages any individual who has been subject to discrimination to report the incident(s) directly to one of the following Officials With Authority:
