At our recent Sexual Harassment and Misconduct Panel last month, we reaffirmed our commitment to keeping Magnet a safe space for all members of our community. We want to make sure that our reporting process for complaints of harassment or misconduct are available to all students, performers, staff, and other members of the Magnet family.

Reporting Harassment/Misconduct

To report misconduct or harassment, you are invited to contact the School Director in the manner of your choosing, either via phone, email, or call the Training Center office at 212-244-2400.

Additionally there are other reporting options you may select based on your preference. You may speak with or email any Instructor, House Manager, Training Center Staff, Artistic Staff, or Sketch Director. All Magnet employees are trained to receive your report, and can explain the next steps and what to expect in terms of follow up. Magnet also maintains a growing list of resources and outside organizations to assist our community.

For more information, please see our misconduct policy or call or email the School Director who will be happy to answer any questions.
