Harvard Policies

In response to changes in federal regulations, Harvard University adopted two interim policies on August 14, 2020 to address sexual harassment and other sexual misconduct occurring on or after that date. The two interim policies are called the Interim Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy and the Interim Other Sexual Misconduct Policy. Together, these interim policies continue to prohibit conduct addressed by University's previous policy, the Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment Policy.

 

Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment Policy

This policy addresses misconduct occurring before August 14, 2020. 

Interim Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy 

This policy is designed to address conduct that falls within Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and other federal and state laws and regulations. This Policy addresses misconduct occurring on or after August 14, 2020. 

Interim Other Sexual Misconduct Policy 

This policy is designed to address sexual misconduct that falls outside the jurisdiction of the Interim Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy. This Policy addresses misconduct occurring on or after August 14, 2020.
