Individuals deserve the right to work and learn in an atmosphere free of violence and harassment and only if the community works together can we create a positive and healthy environment. The College takes acts of dating violence, domestic violence, harassment, threats and bullying on the basis of sex, retaliation, sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, and stalking extremely seriously and strongly encourages individuals to report these acts.
