Prohibited Discrimination and Harassment (including Sexual Harassment) Policy
JWU values and fosters an educational and employment environment free from all forms of hostility, intimidation, and offensive behavior. The university prohibits unlawful discrimination and harassment, including discrimination or harassment, on the basis of age, color, disability, gender identity or expression, genetic information, national origin, pregnancy or marital status, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, status as a protected veteran, or any other unlawful basis (“protected category”). Such conduct violates not only university policy, but may also violate federal, state, and (potentially) local laws.
Discrimination and harassment are inappropriate and will not be tolerated at JWU. Such behavior or the tolerance of such behavior on the part of an employee violates university policy and will result in remedial and/or disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment. Such behavior on the part of a student also violates the Student Code of Conduct and will result in remedial action and/or student conduct sanctions up to and including dismissal from the university.
