Safe Learning Policies

Our policies reflect our commitment to excellence through diversity and inclusion.

We encourage you to familiarize yourself with all our guidelines and policies on diversity, inclusion and specific misbehaviors such as harassment, discrimination and mistreatment.

These regulations and processes are intended to inform and establish procedures that create safe and inclusive research and learning environments. 

Jacobs School Policies

At the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, we have developed a specific set of policies that formally details what we expect of the community and describes how our leaders have committed themselves to protecting you against mistreatment, discrimination or harassment.

Safe learning environment policy

To maintain a safe and inclusive learning environment at the Jacobs School, it is fundamental that trainees, faculty and staff members understand resources, policies and laws pertaining to diversity, inclusion, discrimination and harassment.

The Jacobs School’s diversity policy embraces race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability and veteran status.

In addition, we recognize other talents and attributes that can bring added value to the scholarly and learning environment, including life experiences, record of service, employment and socioeconomic status.

Other Jacobs School policies
