SEXUAL HARASSMENT

ASCC does not condone sexual harassment by any student, instructor, supervisor, or employee. Sexual harassment may be manifested in, but is not limited to, the following forms:

  • Unwelcome sexual conduct, whether it is verbal or physical that interferes with another person’s work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive classroom or campus environment
  • Decisions affecting students (such as grades) made by an instructor or ASCC personnel based on submission to/or rejection of sexual advances
  • Submission to a sexual advance used as a condition of obtaining a particular grade, whether expressed in explicit or implicit terms
  • Slurs, name calling, and other inappropriate and unwelcome comments and behavior based on the sexual orientation of students or faculty/staff
  • Display in the classroom or on campus of sexually suggestive objects or images.

If any student feels subjected to sexual harassment, he/she should report the incident to any Student Services Counselor at any time or specifically to the Dean of Student Services, Dean of Academic Affairs, and/or Academic Deans when appropriate, or the Human Resources Director. The Student Grievance Committee will conduct an investigation into the allegations.

To the best extent possible, ASCC will attempt to keep the identity of the person(s) reporting the incident involving sexual harassment confidential.
