Mt Hood Community College is Committed to Non-Discrimination, Accessibility, and Equity

Non-Discrimination Statement

Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC) promotes non-discrimination by maintaining a respectful working and learning environment free of all forms of discrimination and harassment. It is against district policy for any manager, supervisor, faculty, staff or student to engage in discrimination of any member of the college community based on race, color, religion, ethnicity, national origin, age, sex, gender, marital status, disability, or sexual orientation in its programs and activities. The college shall comply with all local, state, and federal laws with regard to non-discrimination as required by Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Title VI and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Oregon Revised Statute 659A

For inquiries regarding the non-discrimination policy, contact Traci Simmons, associate vice president of diversity, equity, and inclusion and title IX coordinator.


Accessibility Statement

Mt. Hood Community College is committed to providing accessible web pages, as defined by sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as amended.  

We have designed this site to work with the most prevalent screen reader and browser combinations: JAWS with Chrome, NVDA with Firefox, and VoiceOver with Safari. 

Mt. Hood Community College is committed to ensuring that web links, both internal and external are accessible. However, please be aware that some external websites may not be accessible to those using assistive technology. 

Accessible education services can assist you with the conversion of information into accessible formats during this interim period, if needed. If you experience any difficulties accessing the electronic information on our website, distance learning classes, PORTAL, or registration sites due to the inaccessibility of your screen reader, inability to enlarge the font, need for captioning, etc. please email David Pontious, director of accessible education services and ADA/504 compliance officer.

For information on how MHCC is working to better serve those with disabilities view the Mt. Hood Community College Accessibility Continuing Action Plan (this will be section 9.1)
