ANTI-HARASSMENT AND DISCRIMINATION STATEMENT

Bigotry has no place within our community, nor does the right to denigrate another human being. All of those within our community should be aware that any form of harassment and any form of illegal discrimination against any individual is inconsistent with the values and ideals of the university community. The Student Life Office will not tolerate verbal or written abuse, threats, intimidation, violence, or other forms of harassment against any member of the university community. We will strive to protect the rights and privileges and to enhance the self-esteem of all community members. At the same time, we will determine conduct that goes beyond the legally defined boundaries. Likewise, the Student Life Office will not accept ignorance, humor, anger, alcohol, or substance abuse as an excuse, reason, or rationale for harassment.

All of us who work and live in the Texas A&M University at Galveston community have chosen to live here and are committed to these principles which are an integral part of our purpose, values and daily activities.
