Non-Discrimination and Non-Harrassment Policy

Duquesne University is motivated by its Catholic identity and values equality of opportunity, human, dignity, racial, cultural and ethnic diversity, both as an educational institution and as an employer.

Accordingly, the University prohibits and does not engage in discrimination or harassment on the basis of a person's race, color, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, national origin, marital status, genetic history, Veteran status or disability. Duquesne University will continue to take affirmative steps to support and advance these values consistent with the University's mission statement.

This policy applies to all program and activities of the University, including, but not limited to, admission and employment practices, educational policies, scholarship and loan programs and athletic or other University-sponsored programs.

This is a commitment by the University in accordance with its religious values and applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Nothing herein, however, should be interpreted as a waiver by the University of its own Constitutional and legal rights based upon its religious affiliation.

The person responsible for coordinating its efforts under this policy is:

Sean Weaver
Director, Anti-Discrimination Policy and Compliance
