Department of Anthropology Statement of Professional Conduct
Given the increasing awareness of, and attention to, sexual harassment and other forms of misconduct in universities, including GSU, the Department of Anthropology maintains that professional behavior and respect must govern all interactions among students, among faculty, among staff, and across these groups.
If you have concerns about matters related to sexual harassment or other forms of assault, and you wish to share such an incident, you may talk with your advisor, another trusted faculty member, the Director of Undergraduate Studies (Dr. Cassandra White), the Director of Graduate Studies (Dr. Steven Black), or the Chair of the Department (Dr. Jennifer Patico).
Please note that as faculty and staff of GSU, we are legally obligated to report all incidents of sexual harassment, racial/ethnic discrimination, or disruptive classroom behavior to the appropriate office or designate on campus.
Please consult the following link to familiarize yourself with GSU’s complaint process
Please review the GSU policies and procedures regarding sexual misconduct and disruptive classroom behavior
Another resource at Georgia State is the Office of the Ombudsperson, which offers conflict management services at no cost to students
