Equal Opportunity, Harassment and Non-discrimination Policy
Lancaster Theological Seminary aspires to be a welcoming and inclusive community that embraces and values the diversity of all members of the campus community. We strive to accept the uniqueness of all individuals, and we cultivate an environment that respects, affirms, and defends the dignity of each member of our community. We are committed to providing a workplace and educational environment, as well as other benefits, programs, and activities, that are free from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.
To ensure compliance with federal and state civil rights laws and regulations, and to affirm its commitment to promoting the goals of fairness and equity in all aspects of the educational program or activity, Lancaster Theological Seminary has developed internal policies and procedures that provide a prompt, fair, and impartial process for those involved in an allegation of discrimination or harassment on the basis of protected class status, and for allegations of retaliation. We strive to balance the rights of the parties in the grievance process during what is often a difficult time for all those involved.
