RESPECT FOR THE DIGNITY OF THE PERSON
Creighton University desires to foster a campus community where people can work and learn with respect, dignity and freedom from discrimination. Individuals deserve to be free from the threat or actuality of physical violence or verbal abuse. Especially intolerable in view of the University’s commitment to respect for the person are offenses against persons because of their race, religion, ethnicity, physical disability, gender or sexual orientation.
Actions or expressions which may cause violent situations, create a clear and present danger of violent situations, or which represent a malicious or willful attempt to demean, degrade or harass members of the University community will not be tolerated. Such actions include, but are not limited to, acts of violence, physical or verbal threats, verbal harassment, slurs, degrading humor, written materials such as epithets, graffiti or other similar expression.
Persons who believe they are victims of such actions are encouraged to report the incident to Tanya Winegard, Associate Vice President for Student Life, at (402-280-2775) or to the Center for Student Integrity, at (402-280-2718) or to other appropriate University officials. Violation of this policy will result in disciplinary action.
