  • Making threatening remarks directly or indirectly verbally or through forms of written or electronic communication.
  • Allowing unauthorized persons access to University buildings.
  • Intentionally damaging, or attempting to damage, property of the University or of another person.
  • Exhibiting aggressive or hostile behavior that creates a reasonable fear of injury to another person or subjects another person to emotional distress.

The Campus Violence Review Committee is charged with investigating reports of threatening and/or violent behavior, and has the authority to immediately suspend or dismiss a student or employee who is deemed a threat to the UF community. Additionally, this committee has the authority to deny a prospective student admission to the University if the prospective student is deemed a threat to the UF community. Individuals subjected to any act of violence or threat should immediately report the incident to UF Campus Police/ Security Office or the Office of Student Affairs. Any member of the University community who witnesses an act of violence should report it.
