No student shall use physical force or attempt to use physical force against another person or group of people. No student shall communicate an expression of the intent to commit an act of unlawful violence against another person or group of people to that person or group. Examples of physical force include, but are not limited to, pushing, shoving, hitting, kicking, or other physical contact that causes harm, pain, or discomfort. Using physical force as a response to physical force that continues and/or escalates an altercation may also be addressed by this policy. Acts committed against persons while in the performance of their duties (e.g. police officers, residence life staff, faculty/staff) are considered more serious.
