Diversity in Employment

In conjunction with Fontbonne University’s mission, vision, values, strategy and goals, diversity naturally carries over into employment and human resources. Our diversity efforts are supported by underlying policies, practices and communications aimed at attracting and retaining a qualified and diverse workforce. Fontbonne will continue to seek creative avenues to drive diversity in employment practices both internally and externally consistent with university wide initiatives.

Fontbonne embraces a culture of non-discrimination, and it is the policy of Fontbonne University to afford equal employment opportunity to qualified individuals, regardless of their race, color, religion, age, gender, gender orientation, national or ethnic origin, or disability and to conform to all applicable state and federal laws and regulations. In keeping with the intent of this policy, the University will adhere to the following practices:

  • Recruitment, hiring and promotion of individuals in all job classifications will be conducted without regard to color, race, age, gender, gender orientation, national or ethnic origin, disability or religion.
  • All other personnel actions such as compensation, benefits, transfers, training and development, educational assistance, and social and recreational programs will be administered without regard to race, color, age, gender, gender orientation, national or ethnic origin, disability or religion.
