Each of us shares a responsibility in preventing harassment, discrimination, and bullying both within and beyond our campus community.  Harvard University has adopted a universal Non-Discrimination and Anti-Bullying Policy (NDAB Policies).

HMS encourages community members to reach out to the Office of Human Resources (OHR) and other University resources to review and discuss any concerns, We are available to help community members navigate supportive resources, discuss informal ways of addressing concerns, and to assist individuals with navigating informal resolution procedures and formal complaint processes. 

Community members may also contact the Harvard Ombuds Office, a confidential resource available to anyone from the Harvard community, including faculty, trainees, staff, students and those with a Harvard appointment at an affiliate institution, to discuss concerns, clarify goals and consider options and next steps. Finally, the Office for Community Conduct is available to provide support, information, or advice regarding concerns related to the Harvard University Non-Discrimination Policy and Anti-Bullying Policy.
