Discrimination and Harassment: New Policy

The Board of Trustees recently approved the Policy Against Discrimination, Harassment, and Related Interpersonal Violence effective January 1, 2016. The policy is an updated, streamlined policy that more clearly articulates the University’s commitment to maintaining a safe and non-discriminatory learning, living and working environment for all members of the University community – students, employees and visitors.  The new policy will replace three existing, separate policies (Sexual Assault Response Policy; Policy Against Discrimination, Harassment and Inappropriate Romantic Relationships; Title IX Notice) under one coordinated, easier-to-read policy.

Please familiarize yourself with the new policy.  Current policies will remain on the policy website for your reference until the new policy takes effect on January 1st. We ask that managers who supervise employees with limited computer access, please post the policy in a common area.
