Code of Conduct

We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free learning experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment in any form, including offensive communication, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, innapropriate physical contact, or unwelcome sexual attention.

Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees. Behave professionally. Remember that sexist, racist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate.

People asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Anyone violating these rules may be asked to leave the classroom at the sole discretion of the instructors.

If you believe someone is violating the Code of Conduct we ask that you report it by emailing Professor George (PJ) Perry or Professor Stephen W. Schaeffer. All reports will be kept confidential.

For more information, please see Penn State University's Resources for Reporting Wrongdoing.

Attribution: This Code of Conduct was adapted from the example in the book Teaching Tech Together, compiled by Greg Wilson. The example itself was based on the example policy from the Geek Feminism Wiki, created by the Ada Initiative and other volunteers.
