Violence in the Workplace

CSUN is committed to creating and maintaining a working and learning environment free from violence for its students and employees. Respect throughout the University for the dignity and rights of others is intrinsic to an environment free from violence.

The University has a zero-tolerance policy for violence against members of the University community. The University prohibits acts of unlawful violence or threats or unlawful violence. The University may seek injunctive relief in the event of violence or threats of violence against any individual in and on the University community or campus facility.

Existing California State University disciplinary, grievance or other complaint procedures, as appropriate, may serve as the mechanism for resolving acts of violence or threats of violence. Each allegation of an act of violence or a threat of violence will be taken seriously. Where there is reason to believe that University regulations prohibiting violence have been broken, the University may pursue disciplinary action. Such disciplinary action could include demotion, suspension or expulsion from the University for students.
