The School for Advanced Research (SAR) values every individual who works atresides on, or visits our campusSexual misconduct injures and demeans any person to whom it is directed. It destroys the scholarly and artistic environment that is essential to achieving SAR’s mission. Consequently, SAR does not tolerate any type of sexual misconduct in the workplace [or in any situation that is missionrelated (e.g., SAR sponsored activity or event.)] 

Sexual misconduct refers to verbal and physical sexual acts directed to a person through force or coercion; or where a person has not given consent, or is unable to give consent due to his or her use of alcohol or drugs, or disability or age.  It encompasses 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 effect of threatening, intimidating, or coercing a person.
