At NYU Arts & Science, we take responsibility for creating and sustaining environments that allow us to flourish as individuals and as a community. We recognize that inequities of access, resources, and power suppress the advancement of individuals, as well as the advancement of our community. Just as we value the rigorous pursuit of knowledge and lively exchange of ideas as foundational to our work, we value mutual tolerance and civility as foundational to productive professional interaction.
Therefore, we commit – actively and individually – to practices that make our departments, programs, classrooms, offices and laboratories places of positive support, open and respectful communication, and equal access and opportunity. We do not accept or tolerate harassment, discrimination, bullying, or other behaviors that undermine our work and learning. We recognize that taking responsibility for individual thriving makes it possible for us to imagine, discover and create a world where all can thrive.
