The University is committed to creating a learning, living, and working environment in which Discrimination, Harassment, Bias Incidents, and Retaliation are not tolerated, and in which respect for others is fostered. Discrimination, Harassment, and Bias Incidents violate the dignity of individuals, impede the realization of the University's educational mission, and will not be tolerated. In addition, by maintaining a strong, consistent, and clear Policy addressing Discrimination, Harassment, and Bias Incidents, we aim to help create an environment of inclusion and respect for diversity.
