Prohibited Conduct

The College is committed to an environment free from gender-based and sexual harassment, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking, sexual exploitation, complicity and retaliation (“Prohibited Conduct”). Sexual Misconduct and Interpersonal Violence Policy can be found at

Bias / Disrespect

The College is dedicated to mutual respect and inclusiveness of its diverse community. Unfortunately, there are times that this respect and civility are breached through acts of bias or disrespect in our community such as slurs based on one's race, gender, national or ethnic origin, affectational orientation, or any protected status.

Notice of Non-Discrimination

The University of Virginia’s College at Wise does not discriminate on the basis of age, color, disability, gender identity and/or expression, marital status, national or ethnic origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, military status (which includes active duty service members, reserve service members, and dependents), military status, and family medical or genetic information, in its programs and activities as required by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, the Governor’s Executive Order Number One (2018), and other applicable statutes and University policies. The College prohibits sexual and gender-based harassment, including sexual assault, and other forms of interpersonal violence.

 Discrimination: Inequitable treatment by the College of a person based on one or more of that person’s protected characteristics or statuses, excepting any treatment permitted or required by law.

Harassment: Unwelcome conduct directed against a person based on one or more of that person’s protected characteristics or statuses, which conduct is so severe or pervasive that it interferes with an individual’s employment, academic performance or participation in College programs or activities, and creates a working, learning, program or activity environment that a reasonable person would find intimidating, hostile or offensive.

Retaliation: Reprisal, interference, restraint, penalty, discrimination, intimidation or harassment, determined in accordance with applicable legal standards.


The College does not condone hazing in any form. Hazing is prohibited under the State statute on hazing as well as by College policy. The term "hazing" means any action taken or situation created by a member(s) of a student organization toward one or more organization members or toward prospective members (as a part of the new member selection process), that occurs on College-owned or leased property or at College-sponsored or supervised functions or at the local residence of any College student, faculty member, or employee, and that is designed to or produces mental or physical harassment, discomfort, or ridicule. Such activities and situations include, but are not limited to, creation of excessive physical or psychological shock, fatigue, stress, injury, or harm. Student organizations and/or individual members found to have engaged in hazing shall be in violation of College policy and may also be in violation of the State statute. See the Student Organization Handbook for more information.
