Stigma and Non-Discrimination

We understand that some members of our community are from or have connections to places with confirmed cases of COVID-19. We lend our sincere support to all especially those who may be far from home and experiencing distress about the wellbeing of their loved ones.

As a community, Saint Joseph’s University is committed to being a diverse and inclusive community and supports all members of the University community who are from or have connections to anywhere that has confirmed cases of COVID-19. As a community, we must not allow fear to threaten our commitment to embracing diversity on our campus. Bias based conduct, targeting people based on perceptions about identity or beliefs creates barriers to inclusion, access, and trust. It affects not only the targeted individual or group, but adversely affects our entire University community. Biased behaviors, stereotyping and discrimination are not tolerated at Saint Joseph’s University. As a Jesuit university, we set a high bar: to educate and care for the whole person, across all diversity and aspects of identity. Those who experience harassment or discrimination on campus can report it through the online form below.
