The University has two workplace violence policies in place. Please familiarize yourself with these policies. If you have any questions about the policies, please contact your Human Resources representative.
The Pennsylvania State University does not tolerate sexual assault, relationship/domestic violence or stalking and will prosecute the perpetrators of such acts of violence, in cooperation with law enforcement officials, to the fullest extent possible. Penn State is committed to supporting victims of sexual assault through the appropriate provision of primary health care and referral services.
The University is committed to creating an educational environment which is free from intolerance directed toward individuals or groups and strives to create and maintain an environment that fosters respect for others. As an educational institution, the University has a mandate to address problems of a society deeply ingrained with bias and prejudice. Toward that end, the University provides educational programs and activities to create an environment in which diversity and understanding of other cultures are valued.
Acts of intolerance violate the principles upon which American society is built and serve to destroy the fabric of the society we share. Such actions not only do untold and unjust harm to the dignity, safety, and well-being of those who experience this pernicious kind of discrimination, but also threaten the reputation of the University and impede the realization of the University's educational mission.
