Harassment and Discrimination Policy

We strictly follow the policy of Western Michigan University in regards to any type of Discrimination or Harassment in any form.

Please read the introduction of the Official WMU Policy:

1. Introduction

Western Michigan University strives to cultivate a healthy and diverse community that recognizes the value of each individual and helps foster safety, civility and respect for all people. The University encourages all members of our community to participate in the process of creating a safe, welcoming and respectful environment on campus. We affirm the commitment of the University and our community to the values of transparency and timely communication, and accountable and responsible behavior within an ethical, compassionate, diverse and respectful environment.

Members of the Western Michigan University community, including students, employees, faculty, staff, administrators, Board members, consultants, vendors, others engaged to do business with the University, guests and visitors have the right to be free from sexual and gender-based discrimination, harassment, and violence and all other forms of prohibited conduct described in this Policy, including stalking, and intimate partner violence. All members of the community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. Western Michigan University’s policies have been developed to reaffirm these principles, to provide resources for those individuals whose rights may have been violated, and to provide accountability for conduct that violates this Policy. This Policy prohibits a broad continuum of behaviors, many of which constitute a form of sexual or gender-based discrimination, harassment, or violence and are prohibited by federal law.
