2.1 It is the policy of Wheeling Jesuit University that all personnel actions including compensation, benefits, transfers, layoffs, return from layoff, University-sponsored training, education, tuition assistance, social and recreation programs will be administered in a nondiscriminatory manner. This affirmative action and equal opportunity policy applies to employment, promotion, demotion, transfer, recruitment, advertising, termination, rates of pay, or other forms of compensation or any other terms, benefits, or conditions of employment.

2.2 No person will be discriminated against at Wheeling Jesuit University on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, ethnicity, age, marital status, blindness, handicap, disability, or Vietnam Era or disabled veteran status insofar as any of these classes are defined and protected by local, state, and federal laws and regulations.
