Harassment based on an individual's race, color, ethnicity, religion, sex*, age, marital status, national origin,
veteran status, sexual orientation, disability, or other factors is against SCC policy and against the law.
Prohibited discriminatory harassment is defined as:
"Conduct that is sufficiently severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive as to substantially disrupt or
undermine a person's ability to participate in or to receive the benefits, services, or opportunities of the
College, and/or has the effect of creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment."
Harassment, when directed at an individual, may include, but is not limited to:
We live in a global society, and should understand the importance of valuing diversity. Non-biased and respectful
behavior by everyone will strengthen the spirit of the College.
As a student, visitor or employee of SCC, you are required to comply with the requirements of this policy.
Discriminatory harassment of any kind, whether it be harassment based on an individual's race, color, ethnicity,
religion, sex*, age, marital status, national origin, veteran status, sexual orientation, disability, or other factor
is harmful to the persons involved and to the College community.
If you feel you have been harassed, seek help from one of the resources listed below. All allegations of
discriminatory harassment will be confidentially investigated. Discriminatory harassment is against the law and
prohibited by SCC policy.
