Students have a right to speak their mind, but that free speech protection ends with any behavior that results in harassment and discrimination.

Discriminatory harassment is defined in UWM policy as:

  • Any conduct (verbal, written, physical, etc.) that is directed toward or against a person because of the person’s protected status (e.g., race, gender identity or expression, disability, religion, etc.), and
  • unreasonably interferes with someone’s work, education or participation in programs at UWM, or
  • creates a working or learning environment that a reasonable person would find threatening or intimidating.
