NSF Harassment Protocol

UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA REPORTING PROTOCOL PURSUANT TO THE NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION’S NEW TERM AND CONDITION REGARDING SEXUAL AND OTHER FORMS OF HARASSMENT

 

On February 8, 2018, the National Science Foundation (NSF) released Important Notice No. 144. The Notice reminds the research community of its obligations to fully investigate complaints of sexual and other harassment and for complying with Federal nondiscrimination laws. The NSF released a new Term and Condition, Article X: Notification Requirements Regarding Sexual Harassment, Other Forms of Harassment, or Sexual Assault, on September 21, 2018. The term is effective for new awards and funding amendments to existing awards issued on or after October 22, 2018, and as described in the University’s Protocol, which is available here.

While the impetus for this protocol was the new NSF requirements, please note that the University interprets the requirements of this protocol to apply to all grants, including those through the National Institutes of Health and other program sponsors.
