RISD’s Recently Revised Respect in the Workplace Policy


In February 2022, we announced the update of the College’s Respect in the Workplace policy. The expanded policy more fully articulates the expectations for a respectful workplace, and provides examples of respectful and disrespectful behavior, as well as practical options for addressing concerning interactions.
RISD’s commitment to social equity and inclusion compels us to foster a campus culture of inclusion that welcomes difference, promotes student agency, and facilitates shared community-building. Being intentional about how we engage with each other can enrich our professional interactions and foster a more inclusive workplace.
All RISD employees are expected to read and become familiar with the expanded Respect in the Workplace policy and what’s required of each of us to promote a culture of respect and inclusivity.
