Norwich University Statement and Policy on Non-Discrimination
Policy Applicability and Scope
This policy applies to all employees and students of Norwich University, to all applicants for positions of employment with the University, to all applicants for admission to student academic programs, to all recognized student groups, to all vendors conducting business on campus, and to all guests on University property.
Norwich University is committed to the principles of free inquiry and free expression. Vigorous discussion and debate are fundamental to the University, and this policy is not intended to stifle teaching methods or freedom of expression generally, nor will it be permitted to do so. Harassment and discrimination, however, are neither legally protected expressions nor the proper exercise of academic freedom; they compromise the integrity of the University, its tradition of intellectual freedom, and the trust placed in its community members.
