Commitment to Diversity and Nondiscrimination

Diversity creates a dynamic work environment that fosters creativity and excellence. It's one of our core values as an institution. Polk State is committed to achieving excellence through diversity in the classroom and the workplace. Therefore we foster an inclusive culture that results in engagement, innovation, and ultimately student success.

Our policies provide equal employment opportunities for all aspects of employment for all qualified applicants and employees without regard to sex, race, color, religion, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, genetic information or veteran status.

Every effort is made to ensure that our policies regarding hiring, salary administration, promotion, and transfer are based solely on job requirements, job performance, and job-related criteria. In addition, our personnel policies and practices--including those relating to compensation, benefits, transfer, retention, termination, training, and self-development opportunities--as well as our social and recreational programs, are administered without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, veteran status, pregnancy, genetic information or other basis prohibited by law. 


Mr. Reggie Webb is the Interim Director of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion, as well as the College’s Equity Officer and Title IX Coordinator, ensuring compliance with federal, state and local laws prohibiting discrimination and sexual harassment.
