Syllabus Language

Optional Syllabus Language on Sexual Misconduct and Reporting

Northwestern University is committed to fostering an environment where students are safe and free from sexual misconduct. Confidential resources are available to those who have experienced sexual misconduct. Faculty, instructors, and TAs are not confidential resources and are required to report incidents of sexual misconduct, whether discussed in your assignments or in person, to the Office of Equity, which can provide information about resources and options. I encourage students who have experienced sexual misconduct to talk with someone to get support. For more information, including how to request interim protective measures and academic accommodations or file a complaint, see the Get Help page.

Optional Syllabus Language Regarding Discrimination and Sexual Harassment

Northwestern University's Policies on Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct apply to all members of the University community, including students, staff, faculty, and third parties. Any student, staff, or faculty member, or third party, who believes that they have been discriminated against or harassed on the basis of their race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy, parental status, marital status, age, disability, citizenship, veteran status, genetic information or any other classification protected by law, should contact the Office of Equity at (847) 467-6571. Additional information about the University's discrimination and harassment policies, including the campus resources available to assist individuals with discrimination or harassment concerns, is available online on the Office of Equity website.

Students, staff, and faculty who report harassment, discrimination, or sexual misconduct are also protected under the University's Policy on Non-Retaliation
