AAU Thanks House Committee Leaders for Efforts to Combat Sexual Harassment in Science

AAU sent a letter on June 20, 2019 to Chairwoman Johnson and Ranking Member Lucas of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, showing their appreciation for their leadership on the Combating Sexual Harassment in Science Act of 2019 (H.R. 36).  

The Committee's work includes: clarifying the types of grant personnel covered under the bill; developing a clear definition of gender harassment separate from the definition of sexual harassment; and working with AAU to try to address our concerns about the trigger for reporting sexual harassment to funding agencies.

AAU and its member-institutions thank Chairwoman Johnson and Ranking Member Lucas for their leadership and bipartisan efforts to craft meaningful federal policy on this issue.
