The college forbids abusive behavior, understood as any act which endangers the mental or physical health or safety of a student or group, or which destroys or removes public or private property, or which produces ridicule, embarrassment, harassment, intimidation or other such result. These behaviors are not conducive to maintaining a mutual learning environment. Angry outbursts or disagreements do not in themselves constitute abuse. While we hope spectators at athletic events will choose to convey enthusiasm and team support, demeaning, disrespectful or vulgar behavior may be found to be in violation of this policy.

* openness to opinions and points of view different from one’s own;
* understanding and respect for persons whose background may be different from one’s own;
* respect for persons and groups in the search for and affirmation of differences and commonalities of human experience and endeavors;
* maintenance and enhancement of our University as a setting in which differences may be debated and defended with civility, respect and reason as the standards of humane discourse;
* use of education as a humanizing force for all members of the community; and
* courage to face conflicts with integrity and maturity so that negotiation may be genuine and accommodation attainable.
Each student is expected to respect the rights of others and to work to create an open, caring and intellectually stimulating environment where diversity of ideas is valued and every person’s dignity and autonomy are respected.
