Our Commitment to Addressing Campus Climate Concerns:
Grand Valley State University strives to create an inclusive and equitable campus community where people are treated with dignity and respect. If anyone in the Grand Valley community feels belittled, disrespected, or isolated based on their identity, there is a mechanism to report the incident (see below). The university is committed to safeguarding individual’s constitutional rights to free speech and assembly and, we are also committed to addressing incidents of Campus Climate Concerns that may negatively affect individuals and/or communities at the university.
Grand Valley facilitates educational dialogue to ensure that individuals understand both their right to free expression within the community and the impact of their expression on individuals and/or the community. Any time an incident is reported, through the Campus Climate Concerns system, the reporting party will be contacted and informed about support resources available to them at the university. Incidents that may violate university policies or the student code will be investigated through the proper adjudicating body or bodies.
If you’ve arrived at this page, it’s likely that you or someone you know has experienced a campus climate incident on campus. That should never be something anyone on campus should experience and we want to provide you with the support and resources you need.
