Statement on Harassment and Discrimination

The Edwin O. Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies reaffirms its unambiguous commitment to the policy and practice of zero tolerance of sexual harassment, gender-based disparity of treatment, racism, and other forms of discrimination.

As a research institute within the broader university, we remain firmly committed to fostering an atmosphere of safe and healthy engagement with each other as faculty, staff, students, affiliates, and visitors. We will continue working to sustain an environment in which we can all do our best work and strive to achieve our full potential, creating communities, networks, and professional opportunities of access and equity.

If you have any concerns or suggestions on ways in which we can better create such an environment please do not hesitate to reach out to us, Title IX officers, or other Harvard resources such as the Office of Sexual Assault Prevention & Response (OSAPR), which is a confidential resource to all members in our community.
