Statement on Harassment and Discrimination

Like all units at Duke, the Program is governed by university policies on harassment and discrimination, including the pledge that complaints will be handled professionally and confidentially, that judgements will be predicated on due process, and that complainants will be protected from retaliation. These policies can be read in detail at https://oie.duke.edu/we-can-help/complaints-and-concerns/harassment.

Additional information about the types of conduct that constitute prohibited harassment and the complaint process are available from OIE and/or the Graduate School¹s Harassment Prevention Advisors, Jacqueline Looney, Senior Associate Dean for Graduate Programs, or Sondra Ponzi, Senior Program Coordinator. In addition, the Office of Gender Violence Prevention & Intervention in the Women’s Center (https://studentaffairs.duke.edu/wc/gender-violence) provides confidential counseling and support to undergraduate, graduate, and professional students of all genders.
