University of Dayton Statement on Dignity

So God created humankind in his image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

(Gen. 1:27)

A primary assertion of both our religious and civil traditions is the inviolable dignity of each person. Recognition of and respect for the person are central to our life as a Christian and educational community and are what allow us to pursue our common mission while being many diverse persons. Thus, discrimination, harassment, or any other conduct that diminishes the worth of a person are incompatible with our fundamental commitment as a Catholic university conducted in the Marianist tradition.

The University of Dayton is committed to creating an inclusive environment that respects the fundamental dignity of all human beings. As part of our commitment to building a diverse and inclusive community, the University developed a process to address bias related incidents on our campus.  Click on the links in this page to learn more.
