Mistreatment of Others

All students at Deerfield should feel safe. When that is not the case, they should seek out a trusted adult (advisor, faculty resident, cocurricular supervisor, teacher, counselor, etc.), who can offer support and guidance on available steps to address the mistreatment—regardless of its nature—and to help make it stop. Examples of mistreatment include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Sexual Misconduct
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Harassment and Hazing
  • Bullying
  • Cyberbullying
  • Discrimination
  • Retaliation

Options for addressing these behaviors include: mediation, consultation with the Community Conduct Committee, and referral to the Student Life Office for consideration and possible disciplinary action.
