Harassment and Bullying Policy
Hult International Business School is committed to protecting employees and students and to promoting an atmosphere free from harassment and bullying, where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.
The School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, religion, or physical disability in admission to, access to, or treatment in its programs and activities. The School strictly prohibits sexual, racial, and other types of harassment of students, staff, and faculty. Words, gestures, actions, or other behavior which tends to alarm, intimidate, ridicule, embarrass, or insult individuals, or which tends to create a hostile or abusive environment, will not be tolerated and may subject the individual to dismissal from the School.
What to do if a student is experiencing bullying or harassment:
Whenever possible, Hult encourages students to try to resolve harassment and bullying incidents informally. There may be instances, where due to the incident’s seriousness it would only be appropriate to resolve matters formally.
If the student is comfortable, it is recommended that the student should go and talk to the person concerned and explain to them that their behavior is causing offense and ask them to stop. It is best to approach the person at the earliest opportunity to prevent the behavior from escalating.
Hult encourages students who might be subject to any of the behaviors described above to keep accurate written record of any incidents. Students should document: date, time and location of the incident, details on the behavior displayed and information on any witnesses.
