California University of Science and Medicine (CUSM) supports the principles of equal opportunity, inclusion and diversity in employment and education. The University seeks to ensure that no person will encounter discrimination in employment or education on the basis of age, color, disability, sex, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran's status. This policy is applicable to both the employment practices and administration of programs and activities within the University. It is the policy of the University that no person shall be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or in any way be subject to discrimination in any program or activity at the University.
California University of Science and Medicine (CUSM) applies this commitment to all employment and educational practices, including but not limited to, recruitment of and students, admissions, hiring and training procedures, advancement and retention policies, and curriculum/course materials. More specifically, CUSM is committed to diversification of all its internal divisions by race and gender. This commitment stems not only from legal and moral considerations, but also from a conviction that an institution of higher learning is enriched by the presence of diversity and that narrow cultural biases serve to limit rather than enhance the teaching, research, and service functions which are the hallmarks of CUSM's mission.
Compliance with this Diversity and Equal Employment Opportunity Policy is the responsibility of all administrators and others whose duties are related to any personnel decisions regarding employees and students. Further, it is the University's obligation to fully participate in the implementation of all applicable federal, state and local laws dealing with nondiscrimination.
