Harassment Policy

It is UConn Recreation’s goal to foster a climate of courtesy and mutual respect for employees and participants. Because the University is so complex and diverse, we will not always agree with one another. Nevertheless, we expect everyone to speak and act with respect for one another. While no set of rules or policies can wholly govern human conduct, it is important to state that civility is a fragile construct that each of us must appreciate and preserve.

The University of Connecticut reaffirms that it does not condone harassment directed toward any person or group within its community (students, employees, or visitors). Every member of the University ought to refrain from actions that intimidate, humiliate, or demean persons or groups, or that undermine their security or self-esteem.
UConn Recreation is in constant vigilance to ensure an environment that is free of abusive behavior directed toward an individual or group because of race, ethnicity, ancestry, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, and physical or mental disability, including learning disabilities, mental retardation, and past/present history of a mental disorder. Any harassment toward a department employee or participant will subject the individual and/or team to University disciplinary procedures.
