University Housing: Community Standards

Relevant excerpt

In order to form an educational community where civility and citizenship pervades the actions and statements of its members, Community Standards have been established:

Any use of words or acts against one’s self or others that causes physical injury (See UCA76-5-102) or that demeans, intimidates, harasses, threatens or otherwise interferes with another person’s rightful actions or comfort. This includes but is not limited to, verbal abuse, physical batteries, and sexual misconduct.

Intimidation is using words or gestures or committing acts with the intended or actual result that a reasonable person feels bullied or fearful, where such words, gestures or acts serve no legitimate purpose. This includes but is not limited to unlawful coercion, extortion or duress.

Conduct that is harassing is defined as any words, gestures or actions directed at an individual or group that may cause a reasonable person to experience fear or intimidation.

Any conduct or expression that is lewd, repulsive, deeply offensive to decency or indecent. Additional sanctions may apply when such conduct or expression occurs in a place or under circumstances which does or reasonably could cause a breach of the peace or disorderly conduct. (See UCA 76-10-1506)
