The FAS is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy educational and work environment in which no member of the community is excluded from participation in, denied benefits of, or subjected to discrimination in any University program or activity on the basis of sex, sexual orientation or gender identity. More information on the FAS Sexual & Gender-Based Harassment Policy/Resources can be found here, and on Harvard's Title IX Office page.
To ensure that FAS staff are informed about these important topics and understand their rights and responsibilities under Harvard's new Title IX policy, online and in-person training is available.
