[Faculty Handbook Category #3]
St. Olaf College pledges its best efforts to avoid discrimination against any employee or applicant for employment because of an individual’s protected class status, including race, color, creed, national origin, sex, marital status, age, disability, sexual orientation, status with respect to public assistance or religion, except to the extent religion may be a consideration permitted under law.
The college does prefer faculty members who take seriously questions about the relationship of religion to learning. It does not insist on particular answers to religious questions, but it does expect faculty to take religious issues seriously.
