Asia Center Statement on Harassment and Discrimination

April 16, 2018

Dear Colleagues,
The Asia Center reaffirms its unambiguous commitment to the policy and practice of zero tolerance of sexual harassment, gender-based disparity of treatment, and other forms of discrimination.   

We remain firmly committed to fostering an atmosphere of safe and healthy engagement with each other as faculty members, staff, students, affiliates, and visitors.  We will continue to work with the Harvard community and the broader higher education community to promote safe work environments for everyone.  Further, we are committed to participating in efforts to improve the culture of Harvard so that all may achieve their full potential.  

If you have any concerns or suggestions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us, Title IX officers, or other Harvard resources such as the Office of Sexual Assault Prevention & Response (OSAPR).
Yours sincerely,

Karen Thornber
