Policy Against Discriminatory Harassment and Retaliation

BCC condemns all acts of verbal harassment or abuse, which deny or have the effect of denying to an individual his/her legal rights to equality, dignity, and security while at BCC. The policy reaffirms the doctrine of civility, appreciation for pluralism, and pre-eminence of individual human dignity as preconditions to the achievement of an academic community that recognizes and utilizes the resources of all persons while reaffirming the tenets of academic freedom.

The College recognizes its obligation to protect the rights of free inquiry and expression, and nothing herein shall be construed or applied so as to abridge the exercise of rights under the Constitution of the United States and other federal and state laws.

Students or employees who believe that their rights under this policy have been violated shall have recourse under a respective grievance procedure (i.e., the student grievance procedure and the affirmative action grievance procedure) which is detailed in the Student Policy Guide.
