Duke Policies


Harassment of any individual for any reason is not acceptable at Duke University. Harassment is unwelcome verbal or physical conduct that, because of its severity and/or persistence, interferes significantly with an individual’s work or education, or adversely affects an individual’s living conditions. (See the Student Sexual Misconduct Policy for the definition of and procedures related to sex/gender-based harassment.) The Office for Institutional Equity responds to allegations of harassment in which an accusedis not an undergraduate student; see web.duke.edu/equity/harassment.html for the university’s full Harassment Policy.
