The Tianjin Juilliard School has officially adopted The Juilliard School’s Sexual Misconduct Policy.

This Policy:

Retaliation Prohibited

Retaliation is strictly prohibited by Juilliard’s Sexual Misconduct Policy. Retaliation is defined by the Policy as any action taken against a person for making a good faith report under this Policy or participating in any proceeding under this Policy. Retaliation includes threatening, intimidating, harassing, coercing, or any other conduct that would discourage a reasonable person from engaging in activity protected under this Policy.
Individuals involved in the School’s resolution process are reminded of Tianjin Juilliard’s prohibition against retaliation and that if they are found responsible for engaging in retaliation, they may face employment and/or disciplinary action including termination or expulsion. When appropriate the School may take interim remedial and protective measures during the resolution process to support individuals’ safety.

Alcohol and Other Drug Amnesty Policy for Students

Tianjin Juilliard strongly encourages students to report possible sexual misconduct to School officials. The School’s Alcohol and Other Drug Amnesty Policy states that a complainant, bystander, or other individual who in good faith reports any incident of possible sexual misconduct to a responsible employee or law enforcement will not be subject to any action under Tianjin Juilliard’s Code of Conduct for violations of alcohol and/or drug use policies occurring at or near the time of the reported sexual misconduct. The Tianjin Juilliard School considers all employees, with the exception of the Director of Mental Health and Wellness, to be responsible employees.

Education and Outreach

Tianjin Juilliard is committed to fostering a culture of prevention and awareness around sexual misconduct and gender equity. Mandatory Sexual Misconduct Policy training is required for all student, faculty, and staff during onboarding processes, including New Student Orientation. Additionally, Academic and Student Affairs, the Deputy Sexual Misconduct Policy Coordinators, student groups, and other community members may lead interactive outreach efforts to help educate the community on prevention, being an active bystander, how to support survivors, The Juilliard Sexual Misconduct Policy, rights of community members, and related topics. When possible, the School invites partners from organizations with expertise on these topics to lead educational programming.
