Reporting Harassment and Discrimination

As part of our continuing commitment to creating and maintaining One Miami that promotes responsibility, dignity, and respect for all members of our community, Miami University has made several important changes to our Policy Prohibiting Harassment and Discrimination, Title IX Protocol for Employees, and Title IX Protocol for Students. One of the most important changes requires all employees* to promptly report harassment, discrimination, sexual misconduct and interpersonal violence beginning July 1, 2017.

* Those with a legal privilege of confidentiality and researchers may be exempted from reporting. For more information, please review the policy and protocols.

Discrimination and harassment based on one’s race, ethnicity, political beliefs, religion, gender, sexuality, or on any other characteristic that makes us unique, sexual misconduct and interpersonal violence are antithetical to Miami’s core values and have no place on our campuses.

We are deeply committed to finding ways to effectively prevent, reduce and respond to discrimination and harassment, including sexual misconduct and interpersonal violence. Combating discrimination and harassment, including sexual misconduct and interpersonal violence, requires us to be both proactive and reactive. Miami provides proactive education and prevention programs, such as Step Up! bystander intervention and It’s On Us. By asking all employees to report, we will be able to respond more effectively when a member of our community experiences such misconduct. We will connect victim/survivors with appropriate professional support services and ensure that our practices address the reported misconduct in a manner that is respectful and fair to all involved.
