Workplace Violence


Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU) is committed to preventing violence in the workplace and maintaining a safe work environment. IWU will not tolerate any conduct that threatens, intimidates or coerces an employee, customer, or member of the public at any time, including off-duty periods. Additionally, firearms, weapons, and other dangerous or hazardous devices or substances are strictly prohibited from the premises of IWU without proper authorization.

All suspicious individuals or activities, including actual or threats of violence, both direct and indirect, should immediately be reported to Campus Police and then to your supervisor or any other member of management.

Any employee determined to have participated in any threatened or actual violence, or other conduct that violates these guidelines, will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.

All persons who apply for or obtain a protective or restraining order which lists Indiana Wesleyan University locations as being protected areas, must provide to Campus Police and his or her respective Vice President, a copy of the petition and declarations used to seek the order and a copy of any order, temporary or permanent, issued by any court.


This policy applies to all the employees of the University.
