Workforce Violence Policy

(Fayetteville Policies and Procedures 416.0, revised December 2, 2013)

The University of Arkansas is committed to providing a safe, healthful workplace that is free from violence or threats of violence. Reports of threatening or violent incidents are taken seriously and dealt with appropriately. Individuals who engage in violent or threatening behavior may be removed from the premises and may be subject to dismissal or other disciplinary action, arrest and/or criminal prosecution. The university does not tolerate behavior that is violent, threatens violence, harasses or intimidates others, interferes with an individual’s legal rights of movement or expression, or disrupts the workplace, the academic environment or the university’s ability to provide service to the public. Violent or threatening behavior can include physical acts, oral or written statements, or gestures and expressions. For procedures on reporting and action, see
