Franklin & Marshall College is committed to having an inclusive campus community where all members are treated with dignity and respect. The College does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race or ethnicity, color, national origin, religion, age , disability, family or marital status, or sexual orientation in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, financial aid programs, athletic and other College-administered programs.

As required by Pennsylvania law, if there is reasonable cause to suspect that a child has been abused, F&M will report this to the appropriate state authorities. 

Federal legislation requires institutions of higher education to share with all prospective members of the community a copy of their Annual Security Report (ASR), which is available through Franklin & Marshall's Department of Public Safety.  The ASR contains information about the college, its facilities, crime statistics, and where to report any crimes, among other information.  A hard copy of the ASR is available by emailing Chief William McHaleat Franklin & Marshall's Department of Public Safety Campus Police or calling (717) 358-3870.
