Sexual Harassment Policy

County College of Morris reaffirms its desire to create an academic and work environment for all students, faculty and staff that is not only responsible but also supportive and conducive to the achievement of education and career goals on the basis of such relevant factors as ability and performance. Students and college personnel are required to maintain an environment that allows all students and all college employees to enjoy the full benefits of their learning experience or work environment. The use of implicit or explicit coercive sexual behavior to control, influence or affect the performance or status of an individual is prohibited.

Any student, faculty member, staff or administrative employee determined to have been engaged in sexual harassment will be subject to immediate and appropriate disciplinary sanctions. The college has established a procedure to be followed in reporting and investigating complaints of sexual harassment. Any member of the college community who believes he or she has been subjected to conduct that violates this policy should follow the “Procedures for Reporting and Investigating a Sexual Harassment Complaint.” Copies of this procedure are available from the Office of Student Development and Enrollment Management, the Office of Human Resources, and the Counseling and Wellness Center.
