Retaliation violates University Policy.
Retaliation occurs when an adverse action is taken against an individual for engaging in protected activity. Protected activity consists of: (1) opposing conduct reasonably believed to constitute discrimination, including harassment, which violates a nondiscrimination statute or which University policy prohibits; (2) filing a complaint about such practice; or (3) testifying, assisting, or participating in any manner in an investigation or other proceeding related to a discrimination complaint. Adverse actions that are reasonably likely to deter a complaining individual or others from engaging in protected activity are prohibited.
Retaliation is prohibited by the Nondiscrimination and Anti-harassment Policy and the Student Code of Conduct.
For questions about what constitutes retaliation, or to report a concern related to retaliation, please contact the Office of Institutional Equity or the Dean of Students Office.
