Preventing Workplace Violence

George Mason University strives to provide faculty, staff, students, and visitors a safe place in which to work, study and live. As such, George Mason University takes a zero-tolerance approach to workplace violence. While violence in the workplace is rare, it can take many forms; some are obvious, while others are more subtle. All faculty and staff are expected to report suspicious or threatening behavior to the Police or Human Resources. More information can be found by watching this brief video (accessible through the myMasonHR portal) or by reading the policies and resources listed below.
