Undergraduate Student Handbook

Reporting and Resources for Harassment, Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, Bias-Related Incidents and Hate Crimes

Harassment, discrimination, sexual harassment, bias-related incidents and hate crimes are not tolerated in the George Fox community.  These actions may also violate local, state and federal law.  All complaints or allegations of harassment are investigated promptly by designated University personnel.  Appropriate, corrective action may be implemented based upon the findings of the investigation.  Although demeaning, discriminating or harassing messages on such things as flyers, posters, emails, social media (e.g., Facebook), voicemails, and graffiti are often obnoxious or worse, it is helpful to preserve them as evidence, and not to disturb or remove anything that could help identify the source and/or targets or other affected persons.

If any student or employee believes he or she has witnessed, or has been subjected to, harassment, discrimination, sexual harassment, bias-related incidents or hate crimes, the person is encouraged to immediately report the incident to University officials as indicated below.  Any person violating these policies may be subject to appropriate community accountability, up to and including termination if they are an employee, and suspension or dismissal if they are an undergraduate or graduate/DPS student.
