Establish Effective Means for Reporting


NSF expects awardee organizations to provide accessible and effective means for reporting harassment in all settings in which NSF-funded science and learning is conducted. The reporting process should be well known by all program participants. It is also important that reporting practices entail protection from retaliation.
