Commitment to Diversity
Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law maintains a commitment to an educational and a work environment that embraces diverse students, faculty, staff, and visitors on the basis of, for example, race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age and disability. Our students and employees pursue their responsibilities, duties, and goals in a supportive environment. A diversity of views, cultures, and experiences support our academic mission. The law school is dedicated to diversifying the profession by fostering active and successful members of the legal profession through student admissions, faculty and staff hiring, while implementing and maintaining fair academic rules and standards.
Equal Opportunity Pledge
The law school pledges itself to continue its commitment to the achievement of equal opportunity within the university and throughout American society as a whole. In this regard, the law school will recruit, hire, promote, educate, and provide services to persons based upon their individual qualifications. The law school prohibits discrimination based on arbitrary consideration of such characteristics as age, color, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status. The law school takes affirmative action, positive and extraordinary, to overcome the discriminatory effects of traditional policies and procedures with regard to the disabled, minorities, women, and Vietnam-era veterans.
The law school adheres to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and provides necessary and appropriate accommodations to students with physical and learning disabilities in coordination with the university's Office of Adaptive Education Services.
Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, in compliance with Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, mental or physical handicap, age, gender, or sexual orientation in any of its policies, practices or procedures. This policy covers, but is not limited to, admissions, employment, financial aid, educational services, programs, and activities. Inquiries regarding this policy may be directed to the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs.
