Nondiscrimination Policy

University Policy Statement on Nondiscrimination

The University adheres to all federal and state civil rights laws prohibiting discrimination in private institutions of higher education. The University of Dayton does not discriminate against any employee, applicant for employment, student or applicant for admission on the basis of age, race, color, creed, religion, ancestry, national or ethnic origin, sex/gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, genetic information, military status, veteran status, familial status or any other protected category consistent with the requirements of applicable local, state or federal law, ordinance or regulation. This includes protections for those opposing discrimination or participating in any such reporting process on campus or within the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Ohio Civil Rights Commission or other human rights agencies, in the planning and administration of its admissions policies, educational programs, scholarships, loans, and other financial aid, athletic and other school-administered programs, services, and activities, or in employment.

This policy covers nondiscrimination in employment as well as access to educational opportunities. It is the policy of the University of Dayton, while reserving its lawful rights where appropriate to take actions designed to promote the Catholic, Marianist principles that sustain its mission and identity, to not discriminate or permit discrimination in its educational programs or employment opportunities. Therefore, any member of the campus community, guest or visitor who acts to deny, deprive or limit the educational, employment, residential access and/or benefits required by applicable law, and/or opportunities of any member of the campus community on the basis of their actual or perceived membership in the protected classes listed above (which denial, deprivation or limitation constitutes “discrimination” under this policy) is in violation of this policy. This includes failing to provide reasonable accommodations to persons with disabilities, when that accommodation is consistent with state and federal law.

When brought to the attention of the University, any such discrimination will be promptly and fairly addressed and remedied by the University can be found here
