Statement on Student Rights Related to Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity as Aligned with Colombian Law
As stated in our CNG Honor Code and Disciplinary Policy since 2010:
Listed as a Serious Offense: Expressing intolerance relating to race, ethnicity, religion, disability, sex, gender expression, or personal orientation.
CNG POLICY STATEMENT:
As officially outlined in Colombian law for schools and other institutions, CNG policies reflect our school’s ongoing commitment to the following :
CNG’s policy statement conforms to Article-16 of the Colombian Constitution, which states: “All persons have the right to free development of personality, with no other limitations than those imposed by the rights of others and by the legal system.”
Colombian law also regards individuals with diverse gender identity as part of a minority that has been historically discriminated against and excluded, even within the LGBT community. As a result, the protections provided to all CNG students exist not only to prevent them from being victims of any type of discrimination but also to allow them their legal right to fully and freely develop their personal sexual orientation and gender identity.
