Online or off, METRO is a community space where we respect one anothers as well as all comers.

We seek to hold boundaries that create room for sharing ideas. Please read our Code of Conduct below.

At METRO, we strive to:

  • Support an open exchange of ideas within a safe and respectful environment, free from all forms of harassment, including those based on gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, health status, race, age, class, citizenship, veteran status, religion, or beliefs.
  • Offer a space of learning for our community by welcoming and respecting individuals from all professions and with all levels of education and experience.

We ask that all community members adhere to the following expectations:

  • METRO has a zero-tolerance policy for all verbal, physical, and sexual harassment. Anyone who is asked to stop a hostile or harassing behavior is expected to do so immediately.
  • Participation in discussions and activities should be respectful at all times. Please refrain from making inappropriate comments. Create opportunities for all people to speak, exercising tolerance of the perspectives and opinions of others.

We work to ensure that METRO is a welcoming space for all. Please let a staff member know if you experience or witness any harassing behavior. Contact information can be found on our staff page.
