Statement of Non-Discrimination
Ave Maria School of Law recognizes the inherent value and dignity of all members of the human family. It values equal opportunity, and seeks racial, cultural and ethnic diversity. The Law School prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, disability or status as a veteran or disabled veteran. The Law School maintains its Catholic character, but is open to persons of all religious faiths who respect the goals of Ave Maria School of Law, as adopted by the Board of Governors. It does not discriminate on the basis of religion, except to the extent that applicable laws and constitutional provisions respect its right to act in furtherance of its religious objectives. The Law School fully accepts the teachings of the Catholic Church with regard to homosexual conduct and sexual conduct outside the bonds of matrimony, as set forth by the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. Consistent with those teachings, the Law School does not discriminate on the basis of an individual’s sexual orientation without regard to homosexual conduct or other actions that undermine the Law School’s Catholic identity.
