Tolerance and Civility Policy
Each member of the Nevada State College community is responsible for fostering an atmosphere
imbued with dignity, respect, tolerance, appreciation of diversity and positive regard for all
members of our collegiate community. A fundamental tenet of the college’s mission is to nurture a
community atmosphere free from discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, sexual
orientation, age, veteran status, disability and political views or beliefs, and otherwise consistent
with state and federal law. Within this context, all members of the college community are
accountable for their own behavior and actions. Consequently, the college will not tolerate
behavior that violates or infringes upon the civil and statutory rights of any individual or group
(and will utilize the Student Code of Conduct in these cases). As members of our Nevada State
College community, each of us can feel free to express ourselves in ways that promote openness
within a diverse society.
