All employees are expected to abide by Ursinus College’s equal employment/affirmative action policy.

Specifically, in matters affecting employment and application for employment, the College will take affirmative action to ensure that each employee and applicant, regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, creed, ancestry, veteran status, marital status, or disability (except as limitations may be mandate by law) is accorded equal treatment with respect to terms and conditions of employment, including recruitment, hiring, placement, and opportunities for advancement.

Ursinus College is committed to the celebration of and respect for human diversity.  We believe that human beings derive meaning and purpose through their membership in groups as well as through their common humanity and their uniqueness as individuals.  Intellectual and personal growth are enhanced by understanding and appreciating the similarities and differences among groups and individuals.

The celebration of, and respect for, human diversity at Ursinus is based on the following:

  • The principles of freedom and the quality of individuals as expressed in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.
  • The practical goal of preparing students to make significant contributions in an emerging global community.  All communities -- local, national and global -- are stronger and richer to the extent that individuals within them are able to communicate and to affirm life-enhancing values.
  • Individuals whose education has been grounded on mutual understanding and the celebration of human diversity are best prepared to contribute to the making of a just and equitable society.

This statement on human diversity should inform and guide the Ursinus College community as it establishes and implements educational and administrative policies and practices.  These ideals seem especially relevant to those policies and practices that touch upon race, ethnicity, age, religion, sexual orientation and gender, and all other aspects which tend to differentiate human groups.

In making this statement on human diversity, Ursinus College at the same time acknowledges the primary importance in an educational community of the diversity of ideas expressed in the pursuit of truth by all reasonable and free minds in an atmosphere of intellectual openness.

This statement on human diversity at Ursinus College has been developed in the context of the mission statement of the College and the institutional values generated by the mission.
