Wor-Wic Community College is committed to promoting a work and academic environment free from discrimination and harassment and to providing programs, activities and an educational environment in which all individuals are valued, respected and safe.
The college prohibits all forms of discrimination, including discriminatory harassment, sexual harassment, sexual violence and hostile environment caused by sexual harassment. Examples include, but are not limited to:
- Requests or pressure for sexual activity
- Sexual acts perpetrated against a person’s will
- Unwelcome verbal or physical conduct based on a protected class that is so objectively offensive as to alter the conditions of the victim’s employment or education
- Unwelcome sexual advances or other harassing verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that affects the terms or conditions of one’s employment or denies or limits a student’s ability to participate in or benefit from a school's educational program.
No individual who files a complaint or cooperates with a college investigation can be subject to retaliation, including any adverse employment or educational consequence.
Reports of alleged discrimination or harassment can be submitted, in writing or verbally, to any supervisor or Title VI/IX coordinator. Complaints of sexual violence should also be called into the college public safety department at 410-334-2937.
The college’s discrimination and harassment policy applies to students, employees, visitors and third party vendors who are hired by the college. It covers any prohibited conduct that occurs on campus or off-campus when conducting college business or is circulated at or from the college, during college operating hours or using college equipment, via email, phone, voice mail, text messages, tweets, blog posts, social networking sites or other means.
