ASEE Public Policy Statements

ASEE Supports NDAFreeCampus

April 16, 2024 

The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) endorses the mission of NDAFreeCampus to “end the misuse of non-disclosure agreements in US-based colleges and universities and to raise public awareness around the damage to individuals and institutional integrity when NDAs are used to silence survivors of sexual abuse, sexual harassment, workplace harassment, and other forms of bullying.”  
ASEE further encourages all of our member institutions to consider asking their universities to adopt the statement, “(W)e [our president and board of trustees] commit to not using Non-Disclosure Agreements to silence people who come forward to raise complaints of sexual harassment, abuse or misconduct, discrimination, or other forms of harassment and bullying.
