Zero Tolerance for Harassment and Discrimination

The Rutgers School of Public Health has zero tolerance for any form of harassment and discrimination.

In partnership with the Association of Schools and Programs in Public Health (ASPPH) and our member schools and programs, we’re committed to eliminating harassment and discrimination in academic public health.

We oppose acts of harassment and discrimination in all forms, while we simultaneously work towards developing schools and programs that are directed by cultural competence and humility, inclusivity, and diversity.

The Rutgers School of Public Health promises to build upon these ideals, continuing to create and foster an environment where everyone is safe, welcome, and valued.

Perry N. Halkitis, Dean of the Rutgers School of Public Health, chaired ASPPH’s Zero Tolerance for Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Committee, on which Teri Lassiter, Assistant Dean for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, also served..
