Workplace Violence Prevention

Cal Poly Pomona has a long-standing commitment to provide a campus that is safe and secure for faculty, staff, students, and visitors. Behavior that is threatening, harassing, intimidating or in any way dangerous or violent is strictly prohibited and will result in serious action by the University. While no large organization is immune from acts of violence, clear policies and procedures help reduce the likelihood of such events and guide appropriate responses to situations that do arise.


Certain emergencies such as an active shooter, hazardous material spill, or criminal activity, University Police will notify campus personnel by loud speakers, text messages and building announcements. You may be asked to shelter in place.
