All forms of harassment are contrary to basic standards of conduct between individuals and are prohibited by state and federal law, as well as these policies, and will not be tolerated. The College is committed to providing an academic and work environment that respects the dignity of individuals and groups, and shall be free of sexual harassment and all forms of sexual intimidation and exploitation. The College shall also be free of other unlawful harassment.
The College seeks to foster an environment in which all employees and students feel free to report incidents of harassment without fear of retaliation or reprisal. Therefore, the College also strictly prohibits retaliation against any individual for filing a complaint of harassment or for participating in a harassment investigation. Such conduct is illegal and constitutes a violation of these policies. All allegations of retaliation will be swiftly and thoroughly investigated. If the District determines that retaliation has occurred, it will take all reasonable steps within its power to stop such conduct.
