Relevant excerpt

West Virginia Wesleyan College will not tolerate any form of harassment or intimidation, including, but not limited to, sexual, racial, religious, handicap, or age discrimination. Using the telephone, mail, or electronic mail to intimidate or interfere with a person's basic rights is also a form of harassment. Attitudes of condescension, hostility, role-stereotyping, and sexual or racial innuendo weaken the health of the community and are considered harassment as well.

Wesleyan will not tolerate acts of hazing or the exploitation of individuals or groups. At the same time, the College affirms the principle of academic freedom and prohibits discrimination against individuals or groups because they express different points of view. However, the College affirms that freedom of expression does not justify violating human dignity.
