The Belmont community is committed to the dignity and worth of every individual, recognizing that each person is unique and possesses both rights and responsibilities. This commitment to individuals’ worth is expressed through respect for differing opinions, attitudes and cultures and fair and just treatment for all. Further, civil communications, interactions, and resolutions of disagreements are essential to the recognition of another’s dignity and worth.
As members of the Belmont community, students can expect reasonable actions will be taken to ensure that their experience is free from behaviors that compromise this commitment. Such behaviors include, but are not limited to: physical abuse, threats, intimidation (verbal or otherwise), harassment, hazing, coercion and/or other conduct that threatens or endangers the welfare, dignity or worth of any person.
