During this period of remote learning, Bard's Gender-Based Misconduct Policy remains in effect. Students, faculty, and staff can still report incidents of gender-based misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator (email@example.com) or Campus Safety and Security (845-758-7460). Support, resources, and assistance remain available to our community members, formal complaints can still be filed, and investigations will proceed. Please contact the Title IX Coordinator with any questions or concerns.

What Is Gender-Based Misconduct?
Gender-based misconduct includes sexual and gender-based harassment, gender-based discrimination, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, stalking, and intimate partner violence. Bard College prohibits gender-based misconduct and is committed to providing learning and working environments in which all individuals feel safe and are free to develop intellectually, professionally, and socially. For definitions of gender-based misconduct, please see the Gender-Based Misconduct Policy.
Additional resources, including confidential on- and off-campus resources, can be found on our Reporting Options page.
