FOR RECOGNIZED STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS
The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater is committed to the concepts of equal opportunity, non-discrimination and diversity, and recognizes a special obligation to prepare men and women of all cultures, orientations and abilities to accept the responsibilities as leaders of tomorrow. Consistent with this, all recognized student organizations must comply with the concepts of nondiscrimination and equal opportunity when recruiting and selecting members. In addition, the University recognizes the important role that student organizations play in this educational process; and is committed to non-discrimination in the recruitment and selection procedures of University faculty and staff members who will, ultimately, serve as advisors of recognized student organizations.
As part of the criteria for University Recognition, all student organizations must adhere to the concepts of non-discrimination and equal opportunity as they relate to race, color, gender, creed, religion, age, ancestry, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, pregnancy, political affiliation, marital or parental status, Vietnam-era veteran status, or arrest and conviction record, in their educational programs and activities. In holding with the tenets of non-discrimination, the University stresses the importance of eliminating discriminatory and/or culturally insensitive language, behavior and content from University sponsored activities and urges all recognized student organizations to cooperate in this effort.
With very narrow exceptions, student organizations may not discriminate in their selection of officers or members.
