Affirmation - Learning Environment
You deserve a learning environment that is free from discrimination and harassment. If you are experiencing discrimination or harassment, I will do whatever I can to stop it. The University of Georgia's non-discrimination and anti-harassment (NDAH) policy is here. (Note that I am required by university policy to report any instances of discrimination or harassment that you report to me.)
