In accord with its history, mission and credo, Creighton University believes that each individual should be treated with respect and dignity and that any form of harassment, discrimination, sexual or relationship misconduct is a violation of human dignity. The University condemns harassment, discrimination, sexual and relationship misconduct and maintains a “zero-tolerance” for these actions.  Students, faculty, and staff have the right to work and learn free of harassment, discrimination, sexual and relationship misconduct. The University will take all reasonable efforts to prevent and promptly correct instances of harassment, discrimination, sexual and relationship misconduct . Additionally, students, faculty and staff have the right to a structured process for resolving problems, complaints or grievances relating to the execution of institutional policies. The purpose of this policy is:

  • To communicate the mechanisms for investigating complaints in a manner that reasonably protects the privacy of individuals involved in situations of alleged harassment, discrimination, sexual misconduct, relationship misconduct, and grievances;
  • To ensure the provision of equal employment and educational opportunities to faculty, staff, students and applicants for such opportunities without regard to race, color, religion, sex, marital status, national origin, age, disability, citizenship, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, veteran status, and any other groups protected by federal, state or local statutes;
  • To protect all those involved who report or provide information related to harassment, discrimination, sexual misconduct, relationship misconduct, and/or grievances from retaliation of any kind;
  • To set forth guidance for preventing harassment, discrimination, sexual and relationship misconduct;
  • To take timely corrective action when harassment, discrimination, sexual or relationship misconduct is alleged to have occurred;
  • To ensure that students, faculty and staff have the opportunity to present grievances to the University regarding a certain action(s) perceived to be in violation of institutional policies by a member of the University community; and
