Part 4. Personnel Policies
Section I. General Personnel Policies
P. Sexual Orientation Policy
Idaho State University strives to maintain a campus environment where all decisions affecting an individual's education, employment, or access to programs, facilities or services are based on bona fide occupational or educational criteria such as merit or performance. Irrelevant factors or personal characteristics that have no connection with such bona fide criteria have no place in the University's decision making. Accordingly, to the extent that it does not conflict with a contractual obligation or state, federal or local law or regulation, it is the policy of Idaho State University that an individual's sexual orientation* is an irrelevant factor and shall not be a basis for institutional decisions relating to education, employment, or access to programs, facilities or services.
This policy is not intended to nor shall in any way be interpreted to infringe upon rights guaranteed by state and federal law.
*Defined as heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality.
