Safe Learning

Students learning in a classroom.

All members of the Jacobs School community are treated with respect.

At the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, we strive to create a safe and inclusive research and learning environment.

Students, trainees, faculty members and staff members have the right to learn, teach and work in a setting free of mistreatment, harassment and discrimination. If you have concerns related to treatment you have received from others, we have processes in place to provide you with resolutions.
