Deree - The American College of Greece, a non-profit institution, admits students of any race, color and national or ethnic origin and does not discriminate in its programs.
Policy of Equal Opportunities
The College is an equal opportunity employer, and does not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, colour, race, nationality, ethnicity, faith, disability, sex, marital status, or sexual orientation. The College strives to maximize valuable talent and potential, and eliminate unconscious bias, prejudice and stereotyping in the workplace.
Job applicants are assessed according to criteria such as suitable qualifications for the positions(s) available, experience, personal skills, ability, potential, and performance in interviews and on employment tests, and receive impartial treatment regardless of age, gender, color, race, nationality, ethnicity, faith, disability, sex, marital status or sexual orientation.
ACG has developed a documented policy (Nondiscrimination Policy P0001) concerning discrimination issues in a holistic way. In this approach, guidelines are provided for equally preventing as well as dealing with discrimination incidents.
This policy applies to all students, faculty, and staff, including but not limited to non- supervisory staff, supervisors, managers, directors, and leadership. It is the responsibility of every student, faculty, and staff member to follow this policy conscientiously. ACG proactively prevents such issues through education programs carried out by the office of Student Affairs.
Matters concerning discrimination, hate-crime and bias are dealt with through the Student Affairs Committee chaired by the Dean of Student Affairs (for Students) and through a Human Resources committee chaired by the Vice President of Human Resources. So far we can proudly assert that there have been no incidents of bias, hate-crime, discriminatory acts raised to the committees and/or Student Support Services.
