Notice of Nondiscrimination

As an institution that values the dignity of all, the University adheres to all federal and state civil rights laws banning discrimination in private institutions of higher education. Wittenberg University does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, creed, religion, ancestry, national or ethnic origin, sex/gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, genetic information, military status, veteran status, familial status or any other protected category under applicable local, state or federal law, ordinance or regulation.  This includes protections for those opposing discrimination or participating in any complaint process on campus or within the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Ohio Civil Rights Commission or other human rights agencies, as well as 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.  Sexual harassment, which includes acts of sexual violence, is a type of sex discrimination.

The University does not tolerate discrimination, harassment, or retaliation on these bases and takes steps to ensure that students, faculty, staff members, and third parties are not subject to a hostile environment in University programs or activities.  Protective measures are available during an investigation into allegations, and where harassment or discrimination is found to have occurred, the University will take appropriate steps to eliminate such harassment or discrimination, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects.

The following individuals have been designated to handle inquiries and/or complaints regarding the non-discrimination policies.
