Our goal is to promote an educational environment and workplace that is free of all forms of sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, sexual violence, and retaliation. The College will not tolerate any such behaviors, all of which are prohibited by both law and College policy. We will keep our campuses and surrounding communities safe by responding effectively and immediately if an incident occurs.

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
