Our institutional policies ensure that we comply with all federal, state and local laws related to diversity. But we also believe that diversity is about more than observing the letter of the law, which is why we have established numerous programs and support services that help us foster an equitable and inclusive environment for all students, faculty and staff.
Saint Louis University's Office of Institutional Equity is responsible for working with all members of the SLU community on matters related to affirmative action, equal opportunity and nondiscrimination. The office also oversees our compliance with Title IX, the federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in federally funded education programs and activities.
We’re committed to providing a caring, effective and uniform response to any victim of a hate crime or bias-related incident. Our bias incident protocol ensures that incidents are addressed swiftly and that counseling and other support services are readily available to victims.
