The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee seeks to promote a working and learning environment where all members of the UWM community can work together in a mutually respectful, psychologically-healthy environment. UWM strives to foster an environment that reflects courtesy, civility, and respect because such an environment promotes learning, research, and productivity.

Because a respectful campus environment is a necessary condition for success in its mission, UWM is committed to providing a respectful campus, free of bullying in all of its forms. Bullying is pernicious and unacceptable in all working, learning, and service interactions.
