By the Board of Regents Policy, Title 4, Chapter 8, Section 13, the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) is committed to providing a place of work and learning free of discrimination on the basis of a person's age, disability, whether actual or perceived by others (including service connected disabilities), gender (including pregnancy related condition), military status or military obligations, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, genetic information, national origin, race, or religion.

Where discrimination is found to have occurred, the NSHE will act to stop the discrimination, to prevent its recurrence, to remedy its effects, and to discipline those responsible in accordance with the NSHE Code or, in the case of classified employees, the Nevada Administrative Code. Sexual Harassment is Illegal under Federal and State Law. Sexual harassment including sexual violence is a form of discrimination; it is illegal.

No employee or student, either in the workplace or in the academic environment, should be subject to unwelcome verbal or physical conduct that is sexual in nature. Sexual harassment does not refer to occasional compliments of a socially acceptable nature, it refers to behavior of a sexual nature that is not welcome, that is personally offensive, and that interferes with performance. It is expected that students, faculty, and staff will treat one another with respect.

SAFETY IN NUMBERS AND ESCORTS

When studying late or leaving evening classes it is a good idea to walk with friends and classmates. There is always more safety in groups than a single person walking at night alone. If you feel uncomfortable and would like an escort to your vehicle or dorm room please feel free to contact your faculty member, the Campus Director or, in Elko, the Security Department.

CONCERNS

If you are have concerns about a single person please contact the Campus Director, Safety & Security Director or Vice President of Student Services to discuss the situation. (Click here for contact information.)
