Information concerning academic
issues is provided in the catalogs of all of the Vanderbilt University
colleges and schools. The Student Handbook is designed to acquaint Vanderbilt
students with their rights and responsibilities as members of University
community. The "Statement
of Principles," set forth in the Faculty
Manual and comprising the first chapter of this handbook, forms
the foundation for these rights and responsibilities.
In compliance with federal law, including the provisions of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Vanderbilt University does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, religion, color, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, or military service in its administration of education policies, programs, or activities; its admission policies; scholarship and loan programs; athletic or other University-administered programs; or employment.
Vanderbilt University is committed
to the principle of nondiscrimination on the basis of being or being perceived
as homosexual, heterosexual, or bisexual. In affirming its commitment
to this principle, the University does not limit freedom of religious
association, does not require adherence to this principle by government
agencies or external organizations that associate with, but are not controlled
by, the University, and does not extend benefits beyond those provided
under other policies of the University. (See also Same-Sex Domestic Partners.)
