Statement on Addressing Racial Harassment.
National Association of Student Personnel Administrators, Inc.
This short document is a statement by the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators Board of Directors on racial harassment and colleges' and universities' responsibilities to create an environment where such acts are unacceptable. The statement defines racial harassment and asserts the educational community's need to stand against assaults on the dignity and value of any individual. The document further addresses the limits of freedom of speech and encourages the development of processes to assure that the environment of the campuses is monitored to guarantee that racial harassment is confronted and tolerance of differences is encouraged. Recommended procedures include a clear institutional position on harassment and policy and enforcement mechanisms developed by a group made up of representatives of all groups within the university as well as an institution-developed Code of Conduct and action plan to address racial harassment. Appendix A provides a sample action plan. There are two references. (JB)
