The University is committed to and embraces the doctrine that all men and women are creatures of God. Each and all not only deserve but must be afforded the dignity that necessarily follows from acceptance of that doctrine. Anyone who chooses to become a member of or participate in any way in the University community, whether as a student, faculty member, administrator, employee or guest, is expected to accept this standard of conduct, both in theory and in practice.

The University is committed not to tolerate harassment in any form by reason of the race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability or sexual orientation of any person. Violation of this policy will be dealt with by appropriate sanctions, which may include expulsion, suspension, termination or exclusion from the campus.

The University recognizes, respects and values the principles, letter and spirit of the First Amendment right to free speech and expression. The essential concepts of academic and personal freedom require that we go to extraordinary lengths to ensure that even ordinarily distasteful opinions and speech be countenanced, whether popular or unpopular, politically correct or incorrect, foolish or wise, naive or sophisticated. At the same time, we expect members of the University community to be responsible and sensitive when exercising these rights. Free inquiry cannot long exist in a community that permits any of its members deliberately to harm, by deed or word, any of the rest of us.

Harassment

By August 28, 2013

Behavior evidently intended to dishonor such characteristics as race, gender, national origin or ethnic group, religious belief, or sexual orientation is contrary to the pursuit of inquiry and education and may be discriminatory harassment violating the law and Harvard policy. Such grave disrespect for the dignity of others may be addressed and punished under existing procedures where it violates the balance of rights upon which a University is based. It is expected that when there is a need to weigh the right of freedom of expression against others’ rights, the balance will be struck after a careful review of all relevant facts.

as race, ethnic group, religious belief, sex, sexual orientation, disability status, or age. Depending on

the circumstances, such expression may be punished where, from the standpoint of a reasonable

person, they (a) are addressed directly to an individual or several individuals; (b) insult, stigmatize, or intimidate the individual or individuals; and (c) indicate on the part of the speaker or speakers grave disrespect and an intent to demean the individual or individuals. Such harassment, even though purely verbal or symbolic, is contrary to the pursuit of inquiry and education and is considered to violate the balance of rights on which the University is based.
