4. Operational Focus and Independence
EITC’s programs and services are exclusively designed for post-secondary education.
Programs for both AAS degrees and certificates contain the requisite number of general
education courses and technical courses to prepare students for careers in the local and
regional economy. Services are designed to support students as they prepare for and
engage in their education. The College has sufficient resources, operational and
organizational, to be held accountable and responsible for meeting the Commission’s
standards and eligibility requirements.
5. Non-Discrimination
Students are supported in a safe, accepting educational environment. It is against the
policy for any employee to engage in harassment or discrimination of any member of the
college community.
EITC’s policy on equal opportunity is printed on the first page of the catalog and other
documents. It promises equal educational and employment opportunities, services, and
benefits to students and employees without regard to race, color, national origin, handicap,
age, creed or gender. This policy responds to the educational needs and legitimate claims
of the constituencies served as determined by our charter, mission and core themes. Any
person who believes he or she has been discriminated against or harassed may file an
appeal through the EEO office and the Title IV coordinator (the VP for instruction and
student affairs for faculty and the HR Director for Staff). Additionally, Policy 106, Grievance
for Faculty and non-Classified Personnel; Policy 118, Sexual Harassment and Discrimination
for Classified Personnel and Policy 119, Sexual Harassment - Student provide definitions
and the process for filing a complaint.
6. Institutional Integrity
EITC exhibits ethical behavior in governance, operations, and in relationships with
employees, students, and constituencies.
7. Gover
n
ing Board
The Idaho State Board of Education (SBOE) is the policy-making body for all public education
in Idaho. The SBOE consists of eight members, plus an executive director. EITC’s mission
and core themes are monitored annually as separate entities and as they are connected to
the strategic plan. None of the members of the SBOE have contractual, employment, or
financial interests in EITC. The roles, responsibilities, and authority of the SBOE and EITC are
clearly defined in policy, both at the board and institution levels.
