Addressing Discrimination, Harassment and Sexual Violence Policies and Procedures
RCC is committed to ensure that its learning and working environments are free from all forms of discrimination and harassment, including sexual harassment. Therefore, it is a violation of College policy for any employee, student or third-party at RCC to engage in these practices.
In addition, RCC has a zero tolerance for sexual assault, stalking, intimate partner or domestic violence, dating violence and workplace violence. Anyone found participating in any of these activities will be subject to disciplinary action and prosecuted in accordance with RCC policies and procedures and Oregon state laws.
Reporting: Individuals alleging violation of harassment/discrimination policies and procedures are encouraged to report the allegations immediately (see Resources/Contacts) upon experiencing the alleged misconduct, or learning of the alleged misconduct.
Confidentiality: RCC will strive to maintain confidentiality to the greatest extent possible and information will be protected to the extent permitted by law. Complainants are advised, however, that confidentiality can only be respected insofar as it does not interfere with RCC's obligation to investigate alleged or suspected violations of this policy and to take corrective action.
