This Code of Conduct is based on one used by the Western Society of Naturalists.
This course is intended to broaden our communal understanding of different aspects of academia and marine science. We are all coming into it with different lived experiences and levels of understanding about each topic. This course is intended to foster the exchange of ideas, provide participants with an opportunity to share their experiences, to establish pathways for professional development, and accumulate resources that will help our cohort grow as scientists. Thus, we are committed to creating an environment in which all attendees can participate without harassment, discrimination, or violence of any type.
All students must be treated with respect, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, ethnicity, ability, religion, language, professional status, institution, or age. All participants, including guests, are expected to abide by this Code of Conduct.
