Equal Opportunity Policy Statement
Saint Mary’s College, founded and sponsored by the Sisters of the Holy Cross, an order of the Roman Catholic Church, was chartered as an institution for women as a Catholic witness in higher education. It has continued to adhere to that focus and mission. As a Catholic institution, the College reaffirms its mission and philosophy which call for a modeling of social justice and Christian principles in our personnel policies and practices.
All College policies, practices, and procedures are administered in a manner consistent with our Catholic identity. With the foregoing understanding, Saint Mary’s College will not engage in discrimination based on sex, race, color, national origin, religion (except where religion is a bona fide occupational qualification), age, disability, citizenship status, genetic information, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Based on our Catholic values, the College also prohibits discrimination based on sexual or political orientation.
In the areas of undergraduate admission, academic year housing, and varsity athletics, Saint Mary’s College will remain exclusive in respect to sex, but not as to any of the other above-mentioned characteristics.
