Diversity and Inclusion in Athletics

Commitment to Diversity, Tolerance, and Inclusiveness

The Washington College Athletic Department practices and believes in the College's commitment to diversity, tolerance, and inclusiveness. Washington College accords students the opportunity to learn about life, to challenge their own values and the ideas and values of others, and in so doing, to become responsible members of the College community. The College believes that the diversity of its community is its greatest strength and that difference of race, color, national origin, sexual orientation, gender expression, and religious belief are to be respected by all members of the community. While the College imposes no specific moral standard upon its students, each student is expected to uphold standards of civility and tolerance, and engage in constructive and reasoned discourse to express differences of opinion.

Discrimination Policy

Washington College does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, gender identity or gender expression, color, national or ethnic origin, age, religion, marital status, disability, sexual orientation, gender expression, genetic information, or any other legally protected classification in the administration of any of its educational programs and activities or with respect to admission and employment.
