The following polices and guidelines are for anyone affiliated with HMS/HSDM/HSPH as a student, fellow, faculty member or staff person. For further information or to inquire about specific policies, please contact your department supervisor,  your local HR contact person or the Ombudsperson to discuss a matter confidentially.
 

The Harvard Medical School (HMS) and School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) are committed to maintaining a safe and healthy educational and work environment in which no member of the HMS/HSDM community is, on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity, excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or subjected to discrimination in any University program or activity. Gender-based and sexual harassment, including sexual violence, are forms of sex discrimination in that they deny or limit an individual's ability to participate in or benefit from University programs or activities.

Harvard University has adopted a new Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment Policy which applies to all Harvard students, faculty, staff, Harvard appointees, and third parties.  The University also has adopted new Procedures for Handling Complaints Involving Students Pursuant to the Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment Policy, which govern, allegations of sexual and gender-based harassment involving Harvard students, including all students at HMS and HSDM.  Members of the Harvard Union of Clerical and Technical Workers are also covered by the sexual harassment policies agreed to in the collective bargaining agreement and described in the HUCTW Personnel Manual. For HUCTW members those policies take precedence over the policies governing other members of the University community.
