Statement on Harassment & Discrimination

The Korea Institute reaffirms its unambiguous commitment to the policy and practice of zero tolerance of harassment and discrimination based on gender, race, ethnicity, religion, and sexual orientation.

We honor the pursuit of truth, a commitment that includes supporting the highest standards of academic integrity. We reiterate the Institute’s goal of promoting intellectual exchange and discussion that is both informative and civil. In doing so, we state our unequivocal condemnation of hate speech, harassment, and intimidation in any of its forms.

We remain firmly committed to fostering an atmosphere of safe and healthy engagement with each other as faculty members, staff, students, affiliates, and visitors within the Harvard community and the broader higher education community so that all may achieve their full potential.

If you have any concerns or suggestions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. A list of resources* is listed below.
