Code of Conduct

York University’s Undergraduate Research Fair strives to provide a welcoming space that nurtures presentation skills, facilitates networking opportunities, and showcases the excellent undergraduate research conducted at the University. To keep this space welcoming and to allow everyone involved to benefit, it is important that the Fair be a harassment-free environment for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, physical appearance, ethnicity, religion or other group identity.  It is imperative for all involved to remain committed to civil discourse and the free exchange and critical examination of competing ideas, concepts and disciplinary perspectives, with a fundamental respect for the dignity of all persons. Recognizing that this is a shared responsibility of all participants -- students, faculty, librarians, staff, and attendees -- involvement in the Fair requires each individual to commit to maintaining a positive environment that is safe for everyone.
