Roxbury Community College is committed to providing an atmosphere for learning that is free of any conduct that could be considered harassing, abusive or disorderly. In order to ensure that the College meets its obligation to all members of the community, procedures and programs have been established.
Sexual harassment is an abuse of power, which is considered demeaning and interferes with one's ability to work or participate in educational activities.
Under Massachusetts General Law, Chapter 151B, Section 4(1) and Section 16A, sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination and is illegal.
Sexual harassment includes, but is not limited to the following:
a) Sexual advances
b) Requests for sexual favors
c) Other physical conduct of a sexual nature when submission to or rejection of such advances, requests or conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of employment or a basis for education or employment decisions. Such conduct has the purpose or effect of creating an intimidating, hostile, humiliating, or sexual offensive educational, employment or living environment.
