Respectful Environment

Respectful Environment Policy

Expected Behavior
The University of Notre Dame is committed to its core values of accountability, teamwork, integrity, leadership in excellence, and leadership in mission. As such, Notre Dame staff and faculty members are expected to treat members of the University community with dignity and respect, recognizing that diversity of thought and informed debate are valued in an academic setting.

Unacceptable Behavior
The University will not tolerate demeaning, intimidating, humiliating, or hostile behavior that would negatively impact a reasonable person’s ability to learn or work in the University environment, and that has such an impact on a Notre Dame community member. Such behaviors have no place in the academic community. Staff and faculty members who engage in such unacceptable behavior may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination, consistent with Notre Dame disciplinary policy and procedures.
