Notice of Non-Discrimination and Grievance Procedures

Chartered in 1899 and opened in 1902, Simmons College is first and foremost an academic community whose primary goals are to prepare women and men to be well informed, open-minded, and sensitive to values. To attain these goals we seek to create an atmosphere within which students may learn to become actively engaged members of society and to develop the resources to lead rich personal lives.

Such an atmosphere is only possible when the community is free from discrimination and harassment.  Please consult these Policies Against Unlawful Discrimination and Harassment for more information.  They include:
