Winter Teaching Week Workshop: Title IX and Professional Conduct


Friday, January 22, 2021, 8:00am to 9:30am



Seth Avakian, Program Officer for Title IX and Professional Conduct
Erin Clark, Program Officer for Title IX and Professional Conduct

This session addresses principles of professional conduct and classroom management for teachers as it relates to sexual harassment and other sexual misconduct and Harvard’s commitment to gender equity.  We’ll discuss how one balances Harvard University’s commitment to the free exchange of ideas while maintaining a safe and healthy educational and work environment in which no member of the University community is, on the basis of sex, including sexual orientation or gender identity, excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or subjected to discrimination in any University program or activity. Participants will learn how to handle a disclosure of a potential violation of the interim Title IX sexual harassment policy and/or the interim other sexual misconduct policy, and participate in hypothetical scenarios based on real-life experiences of TFs.

This session is part of Winter Teaching Week, which is designed to prepare new and experienced graduate student teachers for their roles as Teaching Fellows in the FAS. Pre-registration is required. Learn more here.
