Non-Discrimination Policy


The University of Notre Dame does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, sex, disability, veteran status, genetic information, or age in the administration of any of its educational programs, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic and other school-administered programs, or in employment.

The University of Notre Dame strives to maintain a community characterized by a respect for others. At a minimum, this means a community that is free from sexual and discriminatory harassment. Our culture of respect means that no type of sexual or discriminatory harassment is tolerated, and all incidents of intolerant or disrespectful conduct will be addressed. The University is dedicated to responding quickly and thoroughly to all reports of sexual or discriminatory harassment, and to enforcing the University’s Non-Retaliation Policy to protect those who report and/or are involved in an investigation of sexual or discriminatory harassment.

Notre Dame is committed to building an inclusive community and welcomes all people, regardless of gender, religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, social or economic class, nationality, disability, or age.

All prospective students are encouraged to read the University’s Spirit of Inclusion statement as well as the University’s policies for reporting discriminatory harassment.

The University has designated the director of its Office of Institutional Equity to handle all inquiries regarding its efforts to comply with and carry out its responsibilities under Title IX and under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
