Recusal is a decision to not act or to limit ones actions. The purpose of recusal is to keep conflicts from starting and existing conflicts from escalating. You are expected not to decide and not to act on decisions when your impartiality might reasonably be questioned, or where you have a personal bias, or prejudice concerning another person or topic. When everyone involved cannot reasonably be expected to be impartial than nobody may act until there is a clear consensus or people can agree on who may act. When people can agree quick action is needed, you may take temporary action to address other people's concerns with the understanding that the decision may be reversed later and anyone may undo the action. You must not decide or act otherwise when expected to recuse.

Wikiversity participants and Custodians alike are expected to act professionally and follow this policy to the best of their ability. Failure to follow this policy may have unforeseeable consequences by the Wikiversity community. You may reports concerns that a person has acted while being expected to recuse to Wikiversity:Request custodian action. If discussion is deemed necessary discussion may be moved to Wikiversity:Community Review.
