Sexual Harassment Policy

The School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences as part of Arizona State University is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation for the entire university community, including all students, faculty members, staff employees, and guests. Details on ASU policies and procedures on dealing with discrimination and harassment can be found in the Academic Affairs Manual (ACD 401).

ASU expressly prohibits discrimination, harassment, and retaliation by employees, students, contractors, or agents of the university based on any protected status: race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and genetic information.

The Office of Equity and Inclusion handles cases involving discrimination, harassment and retaliation. In the case of sexual harassment, there is a duty to report: any employee who is informed of or has a reasonable basis to believe that sexual harassment has occurred, is required to report all information regarding the occurrence(s) to the Office of Equity and Inclusion/Title IX Coordinator.

If an individual wishes to have a confidential conversation about an allegation of sexual harassment, that individual can do so by seeking an appointment with a licensed counselor or health care professional. The university provides such services at the Health Services, Employee Assistance Office, ASU Counseling Services.
