Sexual Harrassment Policy

It is the intention of the Institute for Domestic and International Affairs (IDIA) that the environment of Rutgers Model Congress (RMC) best achieve our educational goal. IDIA will not tolerate any instances of discrimination based upon race, color, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, age, or handicapping conditions.

If any delegate, staff, or faculty member believes that they have encountered discrimination which results in an uncomfortable working environment or disparate treatment, they must bring it to the attention of the Executive Director of IDIA.

Upon receiving information regarding sexual harassment or discrimination, the Conference Head and a member of the IDIA Board, as designated by the IDIA Board, must investigate the merits of any allegations, interviewing all parties involved, and submitting a written report to the rest of the Board. Based on the findings, the Board may, at its sole discretion:

1) Take no action
2) Issue a verbal reprimand
3) Separate the individual(s) from the conference
4) Take any other action
