Code of Conduct

Our Commitment 

This external code of conduct for Campus Champions-sponsored events represents our commitment to providing an inclusive and harassment-free environment in all interactions regardless of race, age, ethnicity, national origin, language, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, political views, military service, health status, or religion. The code of conduct below extends to all Campus Champions-sponsored events, services, and interactions.

Campus Champions is committed to providing an inclusive and harassment-free environment in all interactions regardless of race, age, ethnicity, national origin, language, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, political views, military service, health status, or religion. This commitment extends to all Campus Champions sponsored events and services (in-person training, webinars, committee meetings, networking functions, online forums, chat rooms, and social media) and any interaction including staff-to-participant, participant-to- participant, and participant-to- staff. Participants are all individuals who are not Campus Champions staff who attend and participate including but not limited to administrators, faculty, students, researchers, and research computing professionals. As a project that aims to share ideas and freedom of thought and expression, it is essential that the interaction between participants, users of Campus Champions services, and Campus Champions staff take place in an environment that recognizes the inherent worth of every person by being respectful of all. The Campus Champions team does not tolerate harassment in any form. Harassment is any form of behavior intended to exclude, intimidate, or cause discomfort. Harassment includes, but is not limited to, the use of abusive or degrading language, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. All XSEDE users, participants, and staff are governed by local laws and their organization's code of conduct and policies. 

Taking Action

Anyone who experiences, observes, or has knowledge of threatening behavior is expected to immediately report the incident to a member of the steering committee, Campus Champions staff, or by using the online form. Campus Champions reserves the right to take appropriate action.
