Sexual Harassment Policies

The College prohibits sexual harassment by and towards any member of the College community. Sexual Harassment means unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors or other verbal, non-verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature where (1) submission to such conduct is made a condition of employment, grades, or other College-related benefits, (2) submission to or rejection of such conduct is used as a basis of employment or academic decision, or (3) such conduct interferes with an individual’s work or academic performance or creates an intimidating, hostile, humiliating or sexually offensive work or academic environment.

The College will not tolerate any form of sexual harassment. Students experiencing any incident of sexual harassment should contact the Vice President for Student Affairs or Associate Dean of Student Affairs to report the incident and discuss options for resolution. Students should report incidents as quickly as possible to aid in expeditious resolution. Copies of the College Sexual Harassment Policy and Investigation Procedures are available from the Office of Student Affairs or the Office of Human Resources.
