Title IX and Gender Equity
The DPHB is dedicated to supporting and maintaining an academic environment characterized by civility and respect. We follow the policies of Brown University, the affiliated hospitals, and the NIH regarding sexual and gender-based harassment and other prohibited conduct.
The Brown University Title IX office is an important resource for students, trainees, and faculty: https://www.brown.edu/about/administration/title-ix/.
More information about the Brown policies on sexual and gender-based harassment and other prohibited conduct can be found here: https://www.brown.edu/about/administration/title-ix/policy#policy7A.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) also does not tolerate pervasive or severe harassment of any kind, including sexual harassment, at research organizations that receive NIH funding as described here: https://www.nih.gov/anti-sexual-harassment
Additionally, DPHB affiliated hospitals have their own policies and reporting procedures to ensure and protect gender equity.
