Harassment and Discrimination

Taken from University of Regina's Respectful Work and Learning Environment Policy:
A Policy for the Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination

Policy Statement
The University of Regina is committed to creating and maintaining an environment, in which members of the University community can live, work and learn in a collegial climate of mutual respect, free of harassment and discrimination.

Harassment and discrimination are, fundamentally, a selective denial of the basic human right to be treated with dignity and respect. The University of Regina will not tolerate or condone harassment or discrimination, and will take all reasonably practicable steps to ensure employees or students are not subjected to harassment and discrimination. As defined in this section, this Policy protects employees and students from:

  • Discrimination;
  • Discriminatory harassment; and
  • Personal harassment.

Users of the IMP labs (both students and members of the community) will:

  • conduct themselves in an appropriate and responsible manner, treating others fairly, and with dignity and respect;
  • ensure that their comments, conduct or displays are not disrespectful or offensive by being attuned to the reactions of others.

 

Both working and learning can best be accomplished in a climate of understanding and mutual respect, and each person using the IMP labs is responsible for helping to create a respectful environment free of harassment and discrimination. Every member of the University community and the community at large contributes to a respectful environment by demonstrating respect and humanity by not engaging in, allowing, condoning or ignoring behaviours inconsistent with the law or this policy.
