Nondiscrimination Policy

An important legal and moral responsibility of the university is to see that all members of our community—students, staff, and faculty—are treated fairly and equally by others and also treat others fairly and equally. The following policy addresses this need.

“It is the policy of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth not to discriminate against any applicant for admission or employment, or against any employee, or in any educational programs, on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, age, veteran status, handicap, sex, or sexual orientation.”

LGBT Student Organization(s)

Our OUTlaw organization is comprised of gay and lesbian students, as well as straight allies. A very active and supportive group, OUTlaw hosts and cohosts several symposiums throughout the academic year, as well as many charitable events throughout the year to help local causes.

Domestic-Partner or Same-Sex Marriage Benefits

To the extent allowed by law, and to the extent the benefits are within control of the university, domestic partners shall be entitled to the same benefits accorded to spouses under applicable policies. A domestic partner shall mean a person of the same sex as the employee who lives with the employee in a committed relationship that involves personal and economic bonds. The process for certifying status as a domestic partner shall be determined by the university.

Additional Information

UMass School of Law is proud of its openness to LGBT issues. The Supreme Court announcement of legalizing gay marriage rights, and the arguments heard prior to the decision, were made available to the entire school community. The dean made it a point to change certain bathrooms to unisex in order to assist any transgender issues.
