Sexual Harassment

Human Resources
Policy Number: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2014

It is the policy of the College that employees and students must be allowed to work and learn in an environment free from sexual harassment. Any form of sexual harassment is expressly prohibited and will not be tolerated. All new employees are required to take the Sexual Harassment Training within their first month of employment.

Sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, other verbal or physical conduct of sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of the sexual nature of employees toward students, supervisors toward supervisees, students toward students, students toward employees, or employees toward employees.

Complaints of sexual harassment should be made orally or in writing to the immediate supervisor or to the Chief Human Resources Officer. Complaints should be reported promptly (within eight days) in order to help ensure effective investigation and resolution. Complaints will be promptly investigated in a full and fair manner. The Chief Human Resources Officer, serving as the College’s affirmative action officer, is ultimately responsible for ensuring resolution of any sexual harassment complaints.

Anyone who is found to have violated this policy is subject to applicable disciplinary procedures of the College.
