Non-Discrimination and Harassment Policy

In accordance with its own values and with Federal, State, and City statutes and regulations (,   Barnard does not discriminate in admissions, employment, programs, or services on the basis of race, color, creed, national origin, sexual orientation, or disability.

Barnard College is guided by the precept that in no aspect of employment practices or educational programs should there be disparate treatment of persons because of improper considerations of race, creed, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, or disability. This principle is to be observed in employment of students; in the education of students; and in policies governing any and all recruitment activities and programs.

While Barnard College has long had an express policy against improper discrimination, it is to be understood the policy also explicitly encompasses the goal that faculty, staff and students are to be able to work and study free from harassment by peers, co-workers, students, supervisors or teachers, or guest of the college. Barnard College does not tolerate actions and words that a reasonable person would regard as harassing or coercive.   Appropriate disciplinary action may be taken against those found to have committed harassment.

We ask that all students, alumni, vendors and employers engaged in activities and/or programs through the Career Development office read and understand Barnard College’s non-discrimination and harassment policy.
