Central Oregon Community College believes that diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and beliefs enrich the learning experience of our campus. As a result, we are committed to providing work and learning environments that respect and educate about cultural differences.  All members of the campus share in the responsibility to foster a climate of mutual respect and caring.

COCC's Nondiscrimination Policy
The goal of Central Oregon Community College is to provide an atmosphere that encourages our faculty, staff and students to realize their full potential.  In support of this goal, it is the policy of the Central Oregon Community College that there will be no discrimination or harassment on the basis of age, disability, sex, marital status, national origin, ethnicity, color, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, citizenship status, veteran status or any other classes protected under Federal and State statues in any education program, activities or employment.
