The College strives to maintain learning and work environments that are positive, healthy, and above reproach for all concerned. It recognizes that sexual harassment, in any form, damages the learning and work environments, and has negative effects on attitudes and performances.
Sexual harassment is illegal, unacceptable conduct, and accordingly is prohibited. The College, therefore, shall maintain a learning and workplace environment that is free from sexual harassment.
"Sexual harassment" shall be defined as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other unwelcome verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature.
Any employees or students engaging in sexually-oriented harassment activities will be subject to disciplinary action by the College, which may include loss of employment or expulsion from attendance at BMCC.
