AIAR Code of Conduct

The Albright Institute campus is a safe space, and the well-being and safety of our residents is a primary concern of the Albright staff and trustees. Any questions about local society and how it relates to your behavior can be directed to staff. We make every effort to provide information and resources ahead of time. For further information, or a concern that is not addressed here, please ask the Director.

All members of the Albright community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others.

We will not tolerate discrimination or hate speech based on sex, race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression, or any other protected class.

This policy further prohibits sexual harassment, sexual violence, sexual assault, and intimate partner violence against Albright community members, be they fellows, staff, visitors, or residents, of any gender, gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation. This policy also prohibits gender-based harassment that does not involve conduct of a sexual nature. 

The Albright is committed to fostering a safe environment where sexual misconduct and violence are unacceptable. Sexual misconduct incorporates a range of behaviors including sexual assault, sexual harassment, intimate partner violence, stalking, voyeurism, and any other conduct of a sexual nature that is nonconsensual, or has the purpose or effect of threatening, intimidating, or coercing a person. 

Any concerns or grievances should be brought to the Director, Assistant Director, or Frerichs Annual Professor, who are the designated contacts on these issues. You can also submit an incident report anonymously.
