Dunwoody College of Technology is committed to maintaining a learning and working environment free from discrimination and intimidation, including harassment and sexual misconduct. The College’s mission is best accomplished in an atmosphere of professionalism, which, in turn, is supported, by mutual respect and trust. Dunwoody expects all students and employees and others doing business with Dunwoody to work toward this goal.

Harassment or violence based on a person’s race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, veteran/military status, disability, age, sexual orientation, status in regard to public assistance, membership or activity in a local commission, genetic information, or any other protected class status is unlawful and is strictly prohibited. The College prohibits sexual misconduct of any kind.

This policy applies to all Dunwoody students, employees, volunteers, and all individuals and entities that do business with Dunwoody. Violation of this policy will lead to discipline, up to and including termination of employment for employees, expulsion or suspension from Dunwoody for students, or prohibition from doing business with Dunwoody and exclusion from Dunwoody’s campus for volunteers and third parties.
