By August 28, 2013

All members of the University have a responsibility to promote and a right to expect:

An environment that is free of harassment and free of insulting and demeaning comments
and epithets based on race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, military status, socioeconomic status, family status, or political views; consistent enforcement of federal, state and university protections against discriminatory treatment yet is free from any
official speech codes.
