The Management of Saint Louis University views Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity as a major policy commitment and as an important management goal.
Thus, it is our policy to recruit, hire, train, promote and in all ways provide fair treatment on the basis of the merit without regard to: race, color, sex, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, age or veteran status.
All University policies, practices and procedures are administered in a manner consistent with our Catholic, Jesuit identity. In addition, it is our intent to administer our various personnel programs, such as compensation, benefits, transfers, layoffs, returns from layoff, Saint Louis University sponsored training, education, and social activities, in such a manner as to eliminate any practices which might directly or indirectly exclude any employee from deriving benefit from them.
Special efforts will be made to ensure that all employment decisions are based on principles of Equal Employment Opportunity and with the further commitment to ensure that Affirmative Action will be taken so that qualified minority group individuals, females, Vietnam Era Veterans, persons with different abilities, disabled veterans, and other protected class individuals are introduced in to the work force in an atmosphere that encourages them to aspire for promotional opportunities as they arise.
