College Policies I Equal Opportunity Policy
**THIS POLICY IS UNDER REVISION**
Washington College complies with provisions, as amended, of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1972 Education Amendments. This legislation (most specifically Titles VI and VII of the 1964 Act and Title IX of the 1972 Act) prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, and national origin. The College also complies with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of handicap, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, which gives civil rights protection to disabled individuals.
