DIVERSITY
It is the policy of UTC not to discriminate against any student, employee, or applicant for employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, or being a disabled veteran or veteran of the Vietnam Era.  This policy extends to recruitment, employment, promotion, demotion, transfer, lay-off, termination, compensation, training, benefits, and all other terms and conditions of employment.  Employment opportunities will not be distinguished on the basis of gender unless gender is a bona fide occupational qualification.

The UTC Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is committed to these same policies in accordance with University of Tennessee system in regard to employment and recruitment.  The Department of Athletics is also committed to the professional development of coaches and administrative staff.  It also has a goal to provide all student-athletes, regardless of race or gender, equal opportunity for academic and athletic success and to strive to meet special needs within this student population.

Access by student-athletes to all athletic facilities, such as the training room and weight room and to enhancement programs such as the study skill and tutorial areas, is made available without regard to gender or race.

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Department of Intercollegiate Athletics Diversity Committee functions as an advocacy for minority student-athletes and athletics personnel.  All search committees have representation from the Diversity Committee when vacancies occur.  The committee has four charges:

  • Maintaining an awareness of challenges experienced by minority student-athletes and athletics personnel.
  • Monitoring the activities of the Department of Athletics to determine whether the goals documented in the "Diversity Improvement Plan" are accomplished.
  • Reporting bi-annually to the Director of Athletics on the status of minority student-athletes and athletics personnel.
  • Providing a source of mentorship for minority student-athletes.
