Policies and Reporting
Every member of the Notre Dame community is expected to treat others with mutual respect, hospitality and warmth. This expectation is reflected in numerous University policies and guidelines, some of which are highlighted here. The University also maintains several offices and resources, also described here, that are committed to addressing questions or concerns regarding conduct that is not consistent with the University’s expectations. Ultimately, the purpose behind these policies, guidelines, offices, and resources is to promote an environment where all of the University’s faculty, staff and students feel welcome and valued.
