Introduction of an Off-Campus Harassment Consultation Service

Introduction of an Off-Campus Harassment Consultation Service

Sophia School Corporation (hereinafter referred to as the Corporation) prohibits any act of harassment and ensures that education, research, studies, student life, and work are conducted in a fair and safe environment, as it respects the individuality of all its members, and recognizes that harassment is an infringement of human rights and an act of sexual discrimination.
