I’m experiencing other forms of harassment or discrimination.

Duke's Policy on Prohibited Discrimination, Harassment, and Related Misconduct applies to all operations of the university and protects all members of the Duke community.

This policy prohibits discrimination and harassment based on any of these protected characteristics (also known as protected status): age, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, and veteran status.

The policy also prohibits harassment or discrimination based on the perception of an individual’s protected characteristics, even if that perception is incorrect. Furthermore, the policy prohibits related misconduct, such as sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking.

Students who have academic, workplace, or other concerns that are not covered by this policy have a number of other resources to address them. These resources may include their advisors, administrators in their departments or schools, and the Student Ombudsperson for the University or the Medical School. Anyone can consult directly with the Office for Institutional Equity for guidance at 919-684-8222.
