A Commitment to Non-discrimination

St. Edward’s University is committed to fostering an environment that promotes student self-understanding, clarifies students' personal values, and encourages student responsibility to the world community.

The university expects everyone within our community — students, faculty and staff — to treat others equally and does not tolerate hostile behavior toward others. Behavior that is considered hostile may be defined as (but not limited to) sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, dating or domestic violence, and hate crimes based on gender, gender identity, and/or sexual orientation.

The respect St. Edward’s hold for individuals of various gender identities is not only in compliance with its institutional mission, but also with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
