Campus and Workplace Violence Prevention

Yale University has a long-standing commitment to provide a campus that is safe and secure for faculty, staff, students, and visitors. Behavior that is threatening, harassing, intimidating or in any way dangerous or violent is strictly prohibited and will result in serious action by the University. While no large organization is immune from acts of violence, clear policies and procedures help reduce the likelihood of such events and guide appropriate responses to situations that do arise.

It is the hope of the university that all members of the community act with civility and respect. Individuals who engage in violent, threatening or intimidating behavior are in violation of the Campus and Workplace Violence Prevention Policy.

All members of the community are encouraged to familiarize themselves with security and support services offered on campus. If you would like to submit ideas, questions, or concerns about the safety and security of the Yale campus, you may e-mail them to
