Discrimination and harassment, constitute acts that adversely impact employment or educational opportunity and are based on legally protected classes, such as race, color, religion, age, national origin, ancestry, handicap and/or disability, atypical heredity cellular or blood trait, pregnancy, AIDS or HIV status, genetic information, and veteran status or liability for service in the military. Discrimination against members of identified protected classes is prohibited under state and federal law, as well as under Drew University’s Human Rights Policy. The University Policy embodies Drew’s commitment to creating and maintaining a diverse and open educational community. It is intended to educate the community about discrimination and harassment and to support and protect any member of the community who uses this Policy responsibly to pursue a complaint. Drew will investigate, adjudicate, and remedy reports of violations.
Drew’s Sexual Misconduct Policy separately addresses sexual harassment and misconduct, including discrimination based on the protected classes of gender, gender identity and expression, and affectional or sexual orientation.
Drew University is committed to maintaining and supporting diversity throughout the Drew community. Discrimination or harassment in education or employment on the basis of protected class status constitutes a violation of this policy. Offensive or unwelcome conduct or repeated differential treatment, as defined in this policy, is prohibited. Each member of the University community is expressly prohibited from verbal, physical, written, or other technology-based conduct that creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working or learning environment based on identified protected class characteristics that is sufficiently severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive to unreasonably interfere education or employment.
