Villanova School of Law does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, age, sex, religion or creed, national/ethnic origin, or non-disqualifying handicap. The School of Law is committed to the belief that "with respect to the fundamental rights of the person, every type of discrimination, whether social or cultural, whether based on sex, race, color, social situation, language, or religion, is to be overcome and eradicated as contrary to God's intent" (Vatican Council II, Gaudium et Spes No. 29). With respect to sexual orientation, as a Roman Catholic and Augustinian institution, the School of Law strongly affirms the teaching of the Church on the rights and dignity of all persons, and therefore condemns discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. This position is consistent with the Church's teaching on human sexuality (which does not endorse homosexual conduct). The School of Law accordingly reaffirms its commitment to providing an inclusive and supportive community for all, regardless of sexual orientation.
