“We want to make sure employees know how important it is to ensure an inclusive and positive environment on campus,” said Gail Farmer, Equal Opportunity and Professional Development administrator.  “These issues occur on all college campuses across the nation and what sets us apart is how we respond to issues when they arise. These policies actually are designed to protect our employees.”
