CAMERON UNIVERSITY EQUAL OPPORTUNITY POLICY

Cameron University is committed to the goal of achieving equal educational opportunity and full participation for students with disabilities. Consistent with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Cameron University ensures that no “qualified individual with a disability” will be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination solely on the basis of disability under any program or activity offered by Cameron University.

Cameron University has a policy of internal adjudication in mat­ters relating to alleged discrimination. Any faculty member, staff member, or student, including, without restriction, those on tem­porary or part-time status, who believes that he or she has been discriminated against, harassed or retaliated against should file a complaint under the Grievance Procedure. Any attempt to penalize or retaliate against a person for filing a complaint or participating in the investigation of a complaint of discrimination and/or harassment will be treated as a separate and distinct violation of University policy.
