Gender and Sexual Orientation

BCC is committed to providing a working, living, and learning environment that utilizes the resources of all members of the college community and develops the talents of all of its students without regard to gender or sexual orientation. Any condition that interferes with the development of talents by causing discrimination based on gender or sexual orientation constitutes a destructive force within the college community.

The College hereby prohibits all forms of discrimination on the basis of gender or sexual orientation. This prohibition bars all acts that have the effect of denying to any person equality of right, entitlement, benefit or opportunity by reason of such person’s gender or sexual orientation. Harassment by personal vilification is prohibited whenever such harassment is based on a person’s gender or sexual orientation.

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