Transgender Nondiscrimination Statement.
The University encourages a learning environment in which all of its programs will be free from differences in treatment of persons because of race, creed, sex, color, creed, religion, age, national origin, sexual orientation, veteran status, gender identity, gender expression, disability, or any category that deprives the person of consideration as an individual. Drew aims to treat all individuals with respect and strives to create an inclusive campus community for all employees, students, and guests. Drew recognizes that among the classifications that deprive an individual are those based on associational gender preferences. The principles of nondiscrimination are expected to be observed in the internal policies and practices of the university; specifically, in the admission, housing, health care, and education of students; in policies governing extracurricular activities; and in the employment of faculty and staff personnel. Drew will work cooperatively with the entire university community in furthering these principles.
