Lab Code of Conduct

All members of the lab, along with visitors, are expected to agree with the following code of conduct. We will enforce this code as needed. We expect cooperation from all members to help ensuring a safe environment for everybody.

The Quick Version

The lab is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of lab members in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any lab venue, including lab meetings, presentations, or discussions.

The Less Quick Version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, or unwelcome sexual attention.

Members asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact Matthew Turk immediately. If Matt is the cause of your concern, Kaitlin Kratter (her gmail address is her first and last name separated by a period) is a good informal point of contact; she does not work for Matt or UIUC, and has agreed to mediate. For official concerns, please contact the UIUC WeCare office, or the Campus Office of Diversity, Equity and Access.

We expect members to follow these guidelines at any lab-related event. We expect members to treat each other professionally with respect to their work, with constructive criticism and without dismissive behavior (e.g., eyerolling).
