Kenyon College is committed to fostering a climate free from discrimination and harassment, through clear and effective policies, a coordinated education and prevention program, and prompt and equitable procedures for resolution of reports of conduct prohibited under the Civil Rights Policy. The College encourages all members of its community to participate in the process of creating a safe, welcoming and respectful environment on campus.

This policy provides the Kenyon community with (1) resources and recourse for individuals who experience prohibited conduct, (2) guidance to a reporting party, complainant, respondent or other affected community members, (3) Kenyon’s expectations for healthy respectful interpersonal interaction and communication, and (4) a procedural outline for addressing behaviors that are counter to Kenyon’s mission and prohibited by this policy.

The College emphasizes that every person, regardless of demographic or personal characteristics or identity, is entitled to the same protections against harassment and misconduct on the basis of a protected characteristic and that every individual will be treated with equal dignity and respect.
