Scope of Policy
This policy applies to all College employees, including staff, faculty, and administrators; students; applicants for employment; customers; third-party contractors; and all other persons that participate in the College's educational programs and activities, including third-party visitors on campus (the "College Community"). This policy prohibits sex discrimination, sexual harassment and sexual violence when the complainant and alleged perpetrator are members of the same or opposite sex or gender, and it applies regardless of national origin, immigration status or citizenship status.
The College's prohibition on sex discrimination, sexual harassment and sexual violence extends to all aspects of its educational programs and activities, including, but not limited to, admissions, employment, academics, athletics, housing and student services.
The College has jurisdiction over conduct covered by this policy that occurs on campus, during or at an official College program or activity (regardless of location and inclusive of field trips, social or educational functions, college related travel, student recruitment activities, internships, and service-learning experiences), and to off-campus or online conduct when the conduct could deny or limit a person's ability to participate in or benefit from the College's programs and activities or creates the potential for a hostile environment on campus. The College will investigate all complaints made under this policy and, if necessary, take action to prevent the recurrence of sexual misconduct and remedy its effects.
