3. Faculty play a vital role in the interactive process
4. Do ask, in private, if the student is registered with the DRC and if not then do a warm hand-off to the DRC
5. Do NOT mention that a student registered for the class except when reading the suggested note-taker language, and do not ask about the student’s diagnosis

Discriminatory Harassment means verbal or physical conduct by a student, faculty or staff based on a Protected Class or Protected Classes that is so severe, persistent or pervasive that it unreasonably interferes with or limits a student, faculty, staff, volunteer or PSU community member’s ability to participate in or benefit from the university’s educational and/or employment opportunities, programs or activities. Discriminatory Harassment includes Sexual Harassment.
Non-Retaliation No person shall retaliate against an individual for reporting discrimination or harassment, filing a complaint, participating in an investigation, participating in resolution of a complaint or any other activity protected under this policy, regardless of the outcome of the concern or complaint.
Remedies & Corrective Action Where prohibited discrimination or discriminatory harassment is found, steps will be taken to ensure that the discrimination or discriminatory harassment stops immediately and to reasonably prevent its reoccurrence. Appropriate corrective measures will be implemented and may range from training, counseling, verbal or written reprimands, suspensions, or other action, up to and including dismissal/termination of the relationship with Portland State University, in accordance with established Portland State University policies and procedures, collective bargaining agreements, and the Student Code of Conduct.
