Equal Employment Opportunity


COS is committed to the principles of equal employment opportunity and will implement a comprehensive program to put those principles into practice.

It is COS' policy to ensure all qualified applicants for employment and employees have full and equal access to employment opportunity, and are not subjected to discrimination in any program or activity at COS on the basis of ethnic group identification, race, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, physical disability, mental disability, ancestry, sexual orientation, language, accent, citizenship status, transgender status, parental status, marital status, economic status, veteran status, medical condition, genetic information or on the basis of these perceived characteristics, or based on assocation with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived chararacteristics.

COS will strive to achieve a workforce that is welcoming to men, women, persons with disabilities and individuals from all ethnic and other groups to ensure COS provides an inclusive educational and employment environment.  Such an environment fosters cooperation, acceptance, democracy and free expression of ideas. 

COS' Equal Employment Opportunity Plan is maintained to ensure the implementation of equal employment opportunity principles that conform with state and federal laws.  COS's EEO Plan can be located at:
