Barnard College is committed to providing an environment free from sex and gender-based discrimination or harassment.
Harassment and discrimination are complex issues, and in order to address and prevent all forms of harassment and discrimination within and around the Barnard College community, a number of definitions and policies exist at the university level as well as Manhattan (jurisdiction of the college), state, and federal levels of governments. This page is intended to consolidate an array of definitions that exist.
Clear behavioral standards, important definitions, and descriptions of prohibited conduct are included in this policy. This policy is intended to further the goal that faculty, staff and students are to be able to work and study free from harassment.
