Harassment and Discrimination Policy

Quinnipiac University values diversity, multiculturalism and respect for others. The university is committed to providing a safe and respectful educational experience and work environment free from discrimination and harassment on the basis of an individual’s race, color, religion, gender, age, marital status, national origin, ancestry, physical or mental disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, genetic information or any other characteristic protected by law. This commitment is articulated and confirmed in Quinnipiac University’s Strategic Plan for Inclusiveness, Multiculturalism and Globalism in Education (IMaGinE), which is available for review by visiting the IMaGinE MyQ website.

Students, faculty or staff who are found to have violated the Harassment and Discrimination Policy are subject to the appropriate disciplinary process. Any form of retaliation against anyone who has reported harassment or a discriminatory act is strictly prohibited.
