Equity Policy and Process

The Equity Policy prohibit acts of identity-based discrimination, harassment, and sexual misconduct, including, but not limited to, sexual assault or harassment, domestic/dating violence, and stalking. Such acts undermine Berklee’s community values and are strictly prohibited. The Equity Policy and the institution’s commitment to fostering a safe, supportive, and diverse climate are a fundamental part of a Berklee community where all can study, live, and work together in an environment of equal opportunity, inclusiveness, and mutual respect.

The Equity Policy applies to all students, staff, and faculty at the Valencia campus. If you have experienced or witnessed an incident that may violate the Equity Policy, you can report it to Berklee, local law enforcement, both or neither.

All community members are encouraged to contact the Equity Office to report any instances of potential violations of the Equity Policy and receive additional information, resolution options, and supportive measures.

Reporting to the Equity Office does not obligate any community member to participate in an investigation under the Equity Policy.

Equity at Berklee Valencia

The Equity Policy and Process also applies to Berklee's campus in Valencia, Spain, supported by a team of representatives in Spain, led by Berklee's assistant vice president of equity and Title IX/Title IX coordinator. Please refer to the Equity in Valencia section for more information on how to submit a report to the Equity office, who the Valencia Equity Leadership team is, and more.

Pregnant and Parenting Students

Students may request adjustments based on general pregnancy needs, including pregnancy, childbirth, false pregnancy, termination or loss of pregnancy, or recovery therefrom.

Additionally, students may request a disability accommodation based on a chronic pregnancy-related medical condition or exacerbated symptoms of pregnancy, which may include extreme/chronic morning sickness, gestational diabetes, and preeclampsia.

Please visit the Pregnancy and Parenting Students section on the Equity website to learn more about what kinds of accommodations are available to those who are managing health conditions related to pregnancy or need modifications to care for their children, and note that students may request a pregnancy or parenting adjustment by using our online form or emailing the Title IX Coordinator [Sarah Onori] at sonori@berklee.edu.

Please don't hesitate to reach out to the Equity and Title IX team with any questions about qualifying conditions, modification details, and the request process at equity@berklee.edu
