Why does ICU have Basic Policies for the Prevention of Human Rights Violations?
As a university that values the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, ICU takes as its responsibility the securing of a safe campus for its community members to live and work, by providing an educational, research and working environment free from human rights violations. For this reason, discrimination on the basis of such things as gender, race, nationality, origin, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression or disability, and any harassment that takes advantage of one's position or standing, regardless of the form it takes, is unacceptable.
For this reason, in 1998, ICU established its Basic Policies for the Prevention of Human Rights Violations. Under these policies, a Human Rights Committee and Human Rights Counselor Program have been established, and human rights awareness activities and consultation programs are conducted. All members of the campus community are expected to fully understand the internationality and the Christian spirit that ICU stands for and work together to create a pleasant campus.
