Racial and ethnic harassment includes, but is not limited to:
Physical, psychological, verbal, and/or written abuse with regard to race, creed or ethnic origin that rises to the level of "fighting words."
All individuals shall be afforded the full rights and privileges which are inherent in living, studying, working and visiting on the campuses of Southern Methodist University.
