Operational Focus and Independence
EITC’s programs and services are exclusively concerned with higher education. All 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. All
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.
Eastern Idaho Technical College (EITC ) is committed to supporting students in a safe, accepting
educational environment. It is against the College’s policy for any employee of the college to
engage in harassment or discrimination of any member of the college community.
EITC’s policy, present in the catalog and other publications, provides equal educational and
employment opportunities, services, and benefits to students and employees without regard to
race, color, national origin, handicap, age, creed or gender. The college is committed to
respond 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 is encouraged to file an appeal through the EEO office
and the Title IV coordinator (the VP for instruction and student affairs). 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.
EITC is committed to and known for its ethical behavior in governance, operations, and in
relationships with employees, students, and constituencies.
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 on a yearly basis as separate entities and as they are connected to the
college 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.
