This is my annual reminder about the importance of remaining vigilant in our efforts to prevent bullying and harassment. Kutztown University will not tolerate harassment of any kind --- whether it is in-person, over the phone or online.
As members of the Kutztown University community, we have vital roles in maintaining a welcoming environment, which includes respect for every member of our community. We have policies in place that represent the standards our campus community truly values. These policies can be found on our Social Equity website (http://www.kutztown.edu/admin/socialequity/linksofinterest.asp). The student handbook, The Key, also addresses harassment under its student conduct and regulations sections (http://thekey.kutztown.edu/). In addition, our Department of Information Technology specifies proper usage of the university’s computer network and computers under its acceptable use policy (http://www.kutztown.edu/admin/AdminServ/policy/pdfs/ACA-069.pdf).
Let us all commit ourselves to eliminating harassment in all forms and ensuring a safe living, learning and working environment for our students, faculty and staff. To support this endeavor, a similar reminder from PASSHE Chancellor John Cavanaugh follows.
