Dear Harvard College Parents and Guardians,
As President Drew Faust and Dean of Students Katherine O’Dair shared with our students recently, we are committed to fostering understanding and belonging on our campus – and that acts of bias, harassment, and discrimination are not tolerated in our community. If your student experiences harassment, whether on campus or off, we strongly encourage them to utilize the College’s full range of resources to report this behavior, including our residential staff, faculty, and administrators, as well as the Harvard University Police Department or local Cambridge authorities. The College also has a bias incident response that can be used to report such incidents.
We are all so fortunate to be part of a community that is committed to working together as we move forward into the new year in a spirit of compassion and unity.
Danoff Dean of Harvard College
