“Eradicating discrimination and sexual harassment and fostering a respectful environment requires an ongoing, demonstrated commitment from all members of the University community.”
Elson S. Floyd, Ph.D., President, Washington State University
The following section is taken from President Floyd’s Perspective column:
WSU is committed to being an institution that demonstrates trust and respect for all persons and cultivates individual and institutional integrity in all that we do. To this end, the resources below are intended to assist all members of the University community in the understanding and prevention of sexual harassment and discrimination. Part of being a world-class university is providing a workplace environment where all individuals feel safe, valued, and respected. Accordingly, WSU’s core values include a commitment to being an institution that demonstrates trust and respect for all persons and cultivates individual and institutional integrity in all that we do. Sexual harassment and all forms of discrimination compromise the integrity of the university and destroy the trust and respect expected in the workplace. Therefore, effective June 1, I am requiring all current employees to complete Discrimination and Sexual Harassment Prevention training by Jan. 4, 2013.
