WAC 106-72-025   Equal opportunity for students.   Central Washington University will provide students equal access to all programs and services on the basis of merit without regard to race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, marital status, disability, or status as a ((disabled or Vietnam-era)) protected veteran.

No person will be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity sponsored by the university including, but not limited to, admissions, academic programs, student employment, counseling and guidance services, financial aid, recreational activities, and intercollegiate athletics.

Programs may be developed by the university, however, for special student populations as affirmative action measures to overcome the effects of past discrimination.

No member of the university community shall treat students differently because of their race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, marital status, disability (except to provide reasonable accommodation), or status as a ((disabled or Vietnam-era)) protected veteran. The university has established mechanisms to address complaints to discriminatory treatment, including harassing behaviors (e.g., physical, verbal, graphic, or written) which might lead to the creation of a hostile environment.
