The Board of Trustees approved a revised University Policy Against Discrimination and Harassment (Policy 106). Last spring, President Richard Feldman charged the Policy 106 Committee—a group of faculty, staff and students—to consider changes to the previous version.
The committee proposed revisions and made recommendations regarding investigative procedures and decision-making, language about confidentiality, sharing outcomes with the community more broadly, and addressing inappropriate behavior that doesn’t violate the policy. The committee also solicited and reviewed feedback from the University community.
The University continues to review the policy to remain current with changes in the law. Read the new policy.
The University will continue building on feedback from the Policy 106 Committee and addressing workplace values and equal opportunity. Additional changes to Policy 100 and the University’s code of conduct have been revised and will be announced soon.
