    Excerpt from PS-102:

    Employees are the State's most valuable resource and their safety and security are essential to carrying out their responsibilities. Every employee has a reasonable expectation to perform his/her assigned duties in an atmosphere free of threats and assaults.

    Recognizing the increasing incidence of violence in the workplace, the Governor of the State of Louisiana has issued Executive Order MJF 97-15 effective March 5, 1997 committing the Governor and the State of Louisiana to work toward a violence free workplace for state employees.

    An employee expects to perform his/her assigned duties in an atmosphere completely free of threats and assaults. It is the purpose of this policy to ensure the highest standard of safety for all faculty, staff, students and visitors on this campus. The University will take all reasonably available steps to protect all such persons from violence.
