Sexual harassment of students or applicants in any form is unacceptable conduct that will not be tolerated. Sexual harassment includes unwelcome sexual flirtations, advances or propositions, requests for sexual favors, verbal abuse of a sexual nature, subtle pressure or request for sexual activities, unnecessary touching of an individual, graphic verbal commentaries about an individual's body, sexually degrading words, a display of sexually suggestive objects or pictures anywhere on College property, sexually explicit or offensive jokes, physical assault, and other verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature.
No student, applicant, faculty member or other employee of the College shall threaten or insinuate, either explicitly or implicitly, that a student's or applicant's refusal to submit to sexual advances will adversely affect that person's application, enrollment, grades or educational experience. Similarly, no faculty member or employee shall promise, imply or grant any preferential treatment in connection with any student or applicant with the intent of rewarding for or engaging in sexual conduct.
Any student or applicant who feels that he or she is a victim of sexual harassment by any student, applicant, faculty member or other College employee should bring the matter to the attention of the Campus Executive Director, Campus Dean or Human Resource Administrator at the telephone number specified in this catalog. Any questions about this policy or potential sexual harassment should also be brought to the attention of the above College officials.
The College will promptly investigate all allegations of sexual harassment in as confidential a manner as possible and take appropriate corrective action, if warranted.
