University Policies



The University strives to create and maintain a community in which people are treated with dignity, decency and respect. The environment of the University should be characterized by mutual trust, freedom of inquiry and expression, and the absence of  intimidation, oppression and exploitation.

Therefore, the University will not tolerate any unlawful discrimination, harassment, or sexual misconduct of any kind.  Matters of this kind may also be prohibited by a variety of federal, state, and local laws.  This Policy is intended to comply with the prohibitions of all applicable anti-discrimination laws.
