The University does not discriminate on the basis of: race, color, ancestry or national origin, immigration status, ethnicity, age, disability, religion, sex, gender, pregnancy, military status, veteran status, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, genetic information, and other legally protected characteristics.

The University’s equal opportunity policy applies to all academic programs administered by the University, its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs and athletic programs. It applies to all employment decisions, including those affecting hiring, promotion, demotion or transfer; recruitment; advertisement of vacancies; layoff and termination; compensation and benefits; and selection for training. Consistent with its obligations under law, it also extends to the maintenance of affirmative action programs for minorities, women, persons with disabilities and veterans.

Every member of the Johns Hopkins University community deserves equal access to the abundant educational and employment opportunities we offer. The Office of Institutional Equity coordinates ongoing efforts to make the campus accessible and to make JHU programs available to everyone.
