Policy Statement on Acts of Tolerance:
The Office of Housing/ Residence Life strives to maintain an environment conducive to fostering respect among the various cultures represented in the University community. OHRL has a commitment to addressing, both proactively and retroactively, problems which result from this lack of respect. Whether these acts of tolerance are public or private, they serve to destroy the environment we share and are inconsistent with the fundamental purpose of the University.
[...]
Acts of intolerance have the purpose or reasonably foreseeable effect of creating an offensive, demeaning, intimidating, or hostile environment for a person or group of persons. Any Judicial Code or Housing/Residence Life violation which also victimizes an individual on the basis of another's race, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, creed, national origin, ancestry, age, or level of able-bodiness is regarded as a serious violation and the severest sanctions may be imposed...
Such behavior includes, but is not limited to:
[...]
-Harassment
-Threats
-Disrupting Others in the exercise of their rights
