Violence in the workplace
UFV is committed to cultivating a community where employees and students are able to work and learn without fear of violence, which includes threatening behavior, written and verbal threats, harassment, verbal abuse and physical attacks. Please report violence of any kind to your supervisor or to security, by phone or by submitting an incident report.
Scented products can trigger health problems for many people. This is why UFV encourages our community to avoid wearing scented products or using scented items. Read about UFV's Scent awareness program.
