Quincy University is a private, Franciscan and Catholic University in the liberal arts tradition. The Franciscan tradition stands for respect for each individual and concern for all.
Quincy University is committed to providing equal opportunity to all qualified individuals in its employment and personnel practices, and its admission, education programs and activities, and treatment of students which will assure that there will be no discrimination against any person based on race, religion, age, ethnic or national origin, gender, disability, Veteran status, marital status, sexual orientation, or political persuasion. Decisions on employment and admission are made on the basis of the qualifications of the individual for the position being filled.
Decisions on promotion are likewise made on the basis of the qualifications of the individual as they relate to the requirements of the position for which the individual is being considered.
To maintain its Franciscan character, Quincy University does, however, retain the right to give preference to qualified Franciscans in all positions of employment.
