ASMS is committed to equality of opportunity and the maintenance of an environment free of any discriminatory or harassing conduct based on race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, genetic information, age, or veteran status. In addition, students at ASMS should not be subjected to threatening or offensive conduct based on one’s socioeconomic status, academic status, social, mental or physical ability, or other personal characteristics.
It is the policy of ASMS that no member of the community may engage in speech or conduct that is unlawfully discriminatory or that constitutes harassment, stalking, hazing, bullying, or sexual violence. All students are guaranteed the right to live and learn in an environment founded on mutual respect for all persons and recognition of the dignity of all members of the community free from harassment and retaliation while enrolled at ASMS. The Office of Student Affairs will inform new students of the policy during orientation and when appropriate. This policy works in conjunction with other policies outlined in this Handbook, including the ASMS Anti-Bullying Policy.
