Notice of Non-Discrimination

Engaging in harassment is unacceptable conduct which will not be tolerated. An employee or student found to have engaged in harassment will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination or expulsion. Supervisors or other designated University staff (as identified in the Dickinson State University Harassment Complaint Procedure) who know or should have known of harassment and fail to report such behavior, or fail to take immediate, appropriate action, will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination.

Dickinson State University maintains commitment to the understanding that the maintenance of ethical standards and the concerns for academic freedom prohibit the exploitation of employees and students. Dickinson State University is required by law and State Board of Higher Education (SBHE) Policy to take all steps necessary to prevent harassment. These steps include informing individuals of their rights and responsibilities, developing educational programs to sensitize the campus community to the issue, and developing sanctions against harassment. Employees and students may be held personally liable for acts of harassment.
