The purpose of this policy is to comply with requirements of federal and state law and Regents policy.
Retaliation against persons reporting misconduct is inconsistent with university policy. When federal or state laws prohibit such retaliation, the university may take affirmative steps to remind administrators, faculty, staff, and students of these obligations. It shall not be retaliation to take steps to discipline persons who knowingly or intentionally make false claims of misconduct or for the university to take affirmative steps to prevent or correct damage to persons when it is determined that allegations of misconduct against them are false.
