Housing and Residence Life Policies and Expectations- Abuse, Bias-Motivated Behavior, Domestic Violence, Harassment, and Sexual Assault

Relevant excerpt

Discrimination and harassment have no place on our campus. Harassment can be verbal, physical or electronic in nature. Threats, demands for favors, social media posts or constant calling or texting are just some ways individuals can be harassed. Conduct that is intended to demean an individual and creates a hostile, intimidating, or demeaning environment may be sanctioned if the behavior breaches the peace or tends to provoke an immediate violent response.

Bias-motivated behavior will not be tolerated on campus. Bias-motivated behavior includes activity motivated by an offender’s bias against a victim’s age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, national origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or any other physical or cultural characteristic. Bias-motivated behavior may include, but is not limited to social media, graffiti, vandalism, destruction of personal property, threatening phone calls or text messages, verbal harassment, or physical abuse.
