This policy covers nondiscrimination in employment and in access to educational opportunities.

Non-members of the campus community who engage in discriminatory actions within Seminary programs or on Seminary property are not under the jurisdiction of this policy but can be subject to actions that limit their access and/or involvement with Seminary programs as the result of their misconduct. All vendors serving the Seminary through third-party contracts are subject by those contracts to the policies and procedures of their employers and/or Seminary policy provisions, guidelines or addendums to which their employer has agreed to be bound.

All offers of employment are subject to a successful background screening.
