Good afternoon! Here at Ohio State, we're currently revising our Affirmative Action, Equal Employment Opportunity, & Non-Discrimination Harassment policy. To provide some context around our questions, we have a stand-alone Sexual Misconduct policy addressing sex- and gender-based harassment (not discrimination). Our non-discrimination notice is also a stand-alone document (it is not a university policy, though it is an associated document to multiple university policies). Additionally, our current AA/EE/NDH policy does not address student-to-student behavior; that is addressed in our Code of Student Conduct if the behavior rises to the level of a) endangering health and safety, b) disorderly or disruptive conduct, or c) riotous behavior.
We'd love if you'd share any advice, your current policies, or your thoughts on the following: * Do you combine your policies addressing Affirmative Action & Equal Employment Opportunity and those addressing Non-Discrimination/Harassment, or do you separate them? * Do you address sex- and gender-based discrimination in an overarching anti-discrimination/harassment policy or are those protected classes addressed separately? * Do you address student-to-student harassment via policy? If you do, is this in conjunction with policy relevant to faculty and/or staff?
