We Value Mutual Respect
The Department of Psychology at Tufts University values free expression and critical examination of ideas in an environment of mutual respect. We recognize a shared responsibility to create and maintain this environment of mutual respect for the benefit of all, including faculty, staff, postdoctoral trainees, and graduate and undergraduate students. As such, we do not tolerate verbal or physical harassment or intimidation in any form. If we observe harassing or intimidating behavior, we will take action to restore an environment of mutual respect for everyone, including reporting incidents to the Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO) which is our obligation according to Tufts policy and the law.
This statement uses verbatim language and concepts adapted from the Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science's Code of Conduct.
If someone at Tufts or elsewhere makes you or anyone else feel unsafe or unwelcome, please tell someone so that we can assess the situation and take steps to address it.
- You may report concerns to the Chair or faculty members of the department of Psychology. Please note: As mandated reporters, faculty members are legally required to report any suspected incidents of abuse, discrimination, or harassment to the OEO. Learn more about reporting requirements.
- You may report concerns to the Office of Equal Opportunity.
- If you wish to report the experience to someone who can guarantee confidentiality, you may do so by contacting the Tufts Chaplaincy, Counseling Center, or Sexual Misconduct Prevention Specialist. Other resources (including local non-Tufts hotlines).
- If you wish to report the experience anonymously, you may do so at EthicsPoint.
