Important reminder from student life office in light of recent incident

University staff on Friday became aware that over a week ago someone anonymously left vulgar and highly offensive messages on a whiteboard in a campus classroom. We want to remind our community that language and/or behavior that relies on negative stereotypes or is demeaning toward individuals or groups is absolutely unacceptable for George Fox students and employees, whether it occurs in person, through social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) or anonymously.

Violations of these expectations are taken very seriously by the university, especially when directed at another because of their race, sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion, or disabilities. We want to remind everyone that George Fox has harassment, discrimination, and bias-related incident policies that can be viewed here.

Any incidents of harassment, discrimination or bias should be reported immediately to the student life office. We would also encourage community members to hold one another accountable for what we say and do in this important area.
