MUSC's Non Discrimination Policy for Employees: "It has been, and will continue to be, the policy of the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) to recruit, hire, train, and promote into all job levels the most qualified persons without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, veteran status, genetic information, sexual orientation or gender identity except where sex is a bona fide occupational qualification."

MUSC's Non Discrimination Policy for Student Admissions: "The Medical University of South Carolina does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, sex, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status, or marital status in the administration of admission policies, educational policies, financial aid, or any other university activity."

MUSC Safe Zone: "The Safe Zone Program at the Medical University of South Carolina is designed to reduce homophobia, transphobia, and heterosexism by raising awareness of the presence of these “isms” and their potential impact on individuals in our community."

MUSC Visitiation Guidelines: "Hospitalized patients will be asked to identify a small number of primary support people, who are considered to be the patient's 'family.' Primary support persons are those who normally provide a patient with significant physical, psychological or emotional support. These support people will generally be able to visit at any time during their hospital stay (24 hours a day, 7 days a week). Examples might be a close family member, domestic or same-sex partner, spouse, sibling or best friend."

Office of Student Diversity:  “The Office of Student Diversity collaborates with the MUSC community to promote an inclusive environment that fosters intellectual excellence and the true integration of a diverse student body into all aspects of academic life.”
