Harassment and Discrimination Policy

The Board of Governors of Nipissing University endorses the principle that all members of the University community have the right to study and work in an environment free from harassment. The environment can include incidents that occur both on and off campus which have the potential to adversely impact a person’s work or academic performance or create a poisoned work or study environment. The Board endeavours at all times to provide an environment which is supportive of the University’s goals, dignity and self-esteem of its members, and will not tolerate behaviour that denies individuals their dignity.

Harassment and discrimination of any kind is considered a serious offense, subject to disciplinary action by the appropriate University authority.

The University has established a Harassment and Discrimination Committee for the purpose of resolving complaints under the Harassment and Discrimination Policy (herein after referred to as the Policy).  For the most up-to-date policy, please refer to the Human Resources website.
