Nondiscrimination Policy

D’Youville provides equality of opportunity to all persons in respect to employment and to admission of students. 

D'Youville does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, gender, age, creed, marital status, gender identity, sexual orientation, veteran status, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, hiring policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs. It continues to be the policy of D’Youville not to discriminate on the basis of disability. No person is denied admission, employment, or access solely because of any physical, mental, or medical impairment, which is unrelated to the ability to engage in activities involved in the education requirements or occupation for which applications have been made.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”), 20 U.S.C. §1681 et seq., is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities. All public and private elementary and secondary schools, school districts, colleges, and universities (hereinafter “schools”) receiving any Federal funds must comply with Title IX. Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment or sexual violence, such as rape, sexual assault, sexual battery and sexual coercion.
