Earlham School of Religion adopts the federally mandated anti-discrimination statement, requiring that no discrimination shall occur, regarding admissions or access to, or treatment or employment in, any program or activity in the School on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability. Moreover, the School moves beyond this minimal statement and affirms its commitment to equality of opportunity for all individuals who desire the type of theological education offered within the context of the School's mission statement - including on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity and expression. Furthermore, since ESR is committed to maintaining its Quaker identity, it will actively seek candidates who are Quaker and ecumenical students who are in congruence with Quaker testimonies.
