Hostile and Intimidating Behavior

by chatmandesign

In 2014, the Academic Staff Assembly passed a policy designed to address hostile and intimidating behavior. As stated on the website linked below, “Hostile and intimidating behavior, sometimes known by the shorthand term ‘bullying,’ is defined in university policy as ‘unwelcome behavior pervasive or severe enough that a reasonable person would find it hostile and/or intimidating and that does not further the University’s academic or operational interests.'”

For more details on hostile and intimidating behavior, including definitions, policies by employee category, and campus resources for addressing and preventing instances of this behavior, please visit the University’s website located at http://hr.wisc.edu/hib/.
