Relevant excerpt

While the University does not approve or disapprove student organization activities based on content, student organizations are strongly encouraged to be sensitive in selection of event themes, costumes, t-shirt designs and promotional materials that might portray an offensive or unintended stereotype based on race, color, ethnicity, culture, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability or other personal characteristic. Programs and activities should contribute to creating a campus community that is free of conduct that interferes with any person’s academic efforts or creates a hostile, intimidating, exploitive, or demeaning environment. A student or student organization that participates in harassment (as defined in Chapter 7 of this handbook, the Student Code of Conduct and the Student Organization Code of Conduct) is subject to university discipline.
