EEO STATEMENT


Liberty Common School is an EEO employer.  Applicants are considered for positions for which they have applied without regard to gender (regardless of gender identity or gender expression), race, color, religion, creed, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, disability, sexual orientation, genetic information, pregnancy, or other characteristics protected by law.
 
Studies indicate women and people of color are less likely to apply for jobs unless they believe they can perform all job descriptions identified in the job-vacancy announcement.  Liberty Common School prioritizes identifying the best candidate for the job, and that candidate may come from a less-traditional background.  Liberty Common School may consider an equivalent combination of knowledge, skills, education, and lived experiences to meet minimum qualifications.
 
Liberty Common School is located in the City of Fort Collins in Northern Colorado.  Northern Colorado is an integral part of the traditional and ancestral homelands of the Arapaho, Cheyenne, and Ute Nations.  European-American trappers and traders arrived by the early 1800s but rarely established permanent settlements.  Gold and silver discoveries in the Colorado mountains in the mid-1800s and the prospect of land for farming and ranching attracted people from across the globe to the Colorado Territory, including what would become the town of Fort Collins; an agricultural colony that emerged from its founding days as a military fort.  The expansion included the sugar-beet industry's growth, which brought new residents whose descendants still live here today, including Mexican-American families from southern Colorado, New Mexico, and northern Mexico, as well as Germans from Russia.  Since 1879, Fort Collins has been the home of the state’s land-grant institution, Colorado State University, which currently enrolls 34,000 students.  Along with the university, the city’s major high-tech and manufacturing companies and high performing charter-public schools attract new residents from all over the country and world.  The community’s overall social diversity continues to grow.
