Sexual discrimination, harassment, assault, misconduct or violence can take many forms, including any sexual conduct that lacks mutual consent. Harassment may take the form of stalking or the distribution, display or discussion of any written, graphic, visual or auditory material that is sexual in nature and has the intent and effect of threatening, intimidating or interfering with a person's ability to study or work. Any such behaviors of this nature should be reported immediately.
While it is understood that sexual discrimination, harassment, assault, misconduct or violence may be difficult to report, immediate reporting allows for the best possible means of supporting the victim and to investigate and address the claims.
Retaliation against anyone who reports or participates in the investigative process is prohibited and may be subject to sanctions, as determined by the college.
Students have the right to file a formal unlawful discrimination complaint. The Vice President of Student Services will provide students with the District complaint form and forward the completed form to the District Vice Chancellor of Human Resources.

The complainant may appeal the administrative determination to the District Governing Board within 15 calendar days of notice of such determination. The District Governing Board has 45 calendar days in which to act on the appeal.
