University of Virginia Commitment to a Caring Community of Dignity and Respect

The University of Virginia is a caring community that aspires to treat every individual with kindness, dignity and respect, regardless of position or status. The University cannot realize its bold ambitions for excellence in teaching, research, public service, and patient care unless every member of its community embraces these values and promptly reports instances of misconduct.

The University encourages every member of our community to promptly report any instance of abuse or mistreatment of anyone by University personnel, including workplace bullying, to appropriate supervisors, unit heads, department managers or deans, or through the incident reporting system, with the full confidence that such reports will be treated seriously and investigated promptly and impartially, and without fear of reprisal or retaliation for making a good faith report.
