Protect & Respect Our Scots

A Message from the Alma College President:

Providing a safe and positive environment for students, faculty and staff is our highest priority at Alma College. In this section of the website, we affirm the college’s commitment to promote the goals of fairness and equity at the college, outline the options for reporting civil rights concerns, including civil rights misconduct, and describe the procedures for investigating and resolving complaints.

Alma College complies with all relevant federal and state laws banning discrimination in private institutions of higher education. Titles VII and IX of the Civil Rights Act are designed to protect equality of educational opportunity for all students and of employment for faculty and employees. The document, Civil Rights Grievance Policies and Procedures for Resolving Discrimination, Harassment and Sexual Misconduct, consolidates our policies and procedures into a single governing document as required by the laws that have been established to protect your rights.

The college takes all reports of discrimination, sexual assault, misconduct or violence very seriously and that we promptly and thoroughly investigate all allegations.

We all have a responsibility to keep the campus safe. The college welcomes your help in accomplishing this important task. Please share any questions or concerns with Title IX Coordinator and Equity/AA Coordinator Ann Hall or with me.
