Oregon College of Oriental Medicine is committed to maintaining environments that enable a free and diverse community in which students, faculty and staff can learn, work and express themselves. Membership in the OCOM community imposes obligations on students, faculty and staff to respect the dignity and autonomy of others and to treat one another civilly and without regard to factors irrelevant to participation in the life of the college.

This policy details and explicitly prohibits specific forms of harassment and encourages the reporting of these prohibited behaviors. OCOM will work to prevent them and their recurrence, and to correct any discriminatory effects on a complainant or others.
