Racial and Ethnic Harassment

The Committee on Multicultural Affairs chaired by the assistant dean for multicultural affairs was created to combat racial and ethnic insensitivity and harassment throughout the School of Medicine. Vigorous steps are taken to investigate any allegation, to counsel the offender, and to recommend disciplinary action, if necessary. In addition, any student, employee, or applicant for programs or employment at Yale who is concerned about affirmative action, equal opportunity, sexual harassment, racial harassment, or fairness in admissions or employment at Yale, either in a general sense or with respect to his or her own situation, is encouraged to contact the Office for Equal Opportunity Programs. The web site is www.yale.edu/equalopportunity/. A student who believes that he or she has been harassed on the basis of race, religion or ethnic origin by any member of the Yale community can file a complaint with one of the university’s human relations counselors who will investigate the complaint. If a resolution has not been achieved and the student wishes to pursue the complaint further, he or she may request the President’s Committee on Racial and Ethnic Harassment to consider the matter.
