  • Equal opportunity employer and educator

    Equal opportunity in employment is governed by a variety of federal laws. The major applicable federal laws are Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Rehabilitation Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Equal Pay Act, and VEVRAA. Collectively, these laws prohibit discrimination in all terms and conditions of employment - including hiring, compensation, training, promotion, and termination - based on race/ethnicity, color, national origin, sex, disability, veteran's status, and age. The majority of these laws are enforced by the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, frequently known as the EEOC.

    In addition to those mentioned above, equal opportunity in higher education is also governed by Titles VI and IX. Like their employment law counterparts, these laws collectively prohibit discrimination in educational programs or activities based on race, national origin, and sex. These laws are enforced by a division of the Department of Education known as the Office for Civil Rights (OCR).

    The principles of the Catholic Benedictine tradition, equal employment opportunity, and nondiscrimination are fundamental to the mission, goals, and objectives of Saint Martin’s University. The University does not discriminate in employment or in the delivery or administration of its educational programs, policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic or other University programs on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, race, color, religion (except as a bona fide occupational qualification for certain select positions), marital status, national or ethnic origin, military or veteran status, age, or disability.
