Nondiscrimination Policy

The FAU School of Social Work affirms the Council on Social Work Education’s and National Association of Social Workers’ principle of respect for the dignity of all humans. Accordingly, all policies and practices related to recruitment, admissions, philosophy and curriculum, treatment of students, hiring, retention, promotion, and treatment of faculty and staff are inclusive and non-discriminatory. Specifically, the FAU School of Social Work does not practice, condone, facilitate, or collaborate with any form of discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, marital status, socioeconomic status, political belief, religion, or mental or disability, or any other aspect of human diversity.

Concerns about Discrimination or Intolerance

We are aware that there are materials being circulated accusing FAU of religious and social intolerance. Nothing could be further from the truth, and it?s important that we go on record with the real story. FAU ranks as the most racially, ethnically and culturally diverse institution in Florida?s State University System. Honoring diversity is an important element of our public mission, and we?re proud to have built a community that values social, cultural and religious tolerance.
