Preventing Workplace Violence

George Mason University strives to provide faculty, staff, students, and visitors a safe place in which to work, study, and live. Mason takes a zero-tolerance approach to workplace violence. It can take many forms; some are obvious while others are subtler.


Reporting Procedures

All faculty and staff are expected to report suspicious or threatening behavior in accordance with University Policy Number 2208: Violence Prevention.

Reporting procedures can be found at Mason's Violence Awareness and Prevention website.
