JBU affirms the biblical truth that all people are created in the image of God and should be treated with dignity and respect. In keeping with that commitment, JBU aspires to be an authentically diverse community where people can flourish and grow in keeping with God’s design for their lives. In that context, JBU does not unlawfully discriminate based on race, color, national or ethnic origin, sex, age, disability, marital status, military status, or age in the administration of its educational policies, admissions, financial aid, employment, educational programs, or activities. JBU is committed to preserving human dignity and is particularly concerned about harassment, whether sexual, racial, ethnic, or any other type.
As a Christ-centered, religious institution, JBU retains the right to make employment, admission, and educational decisions based on an individual’s religious beliefs and conduct consistent with the JBU’s Statement of Faith, Employee Expectations, Student Community Covenant, and other university policies. In general, JBU opposes discrimination, harassment and retaliation as stated in this Policy, but it is also exempt from certain state and federal anti-discrimination laws due to its status as a religious non-profit corporation and its constitutional right to act in accordance with its religious beliefs. Nothing in this policy is intended, nor should it be construed, to waive JBU’s rights to those exemptions or legal defenses, or of JBU’s right to make and enforce policies in furtherance of its religious beliefs.
