The University of Louisville's Discriminatory Harassment Policy reflects the commitment to maintain a community that is free from harassment of any kind. Harassment of any kind is not acceptable at the university. It is inconsistent with the university's commitment to excellence and respect for all individuals. The university is also committed to protecting the academic freedom and freedom of expression of all members of the university community. Academic freedom and freedom of expression includes, but is not limited to, the expression of ideas, however controversial, in the classroom, residence hall, and in keeping with different responsibilities, in work places elsewhere in the university community. This policy does not attempt to address behaviors that do not constitute discriminatory harassment. Offensive behavior that does not violate this policy should be addressed by the appropriate supervisor or office as outlined in the Staff Handbook, Redbook, or Student Handbook.
