Harassment and Discrimination

Bellin College’s policies and procedures are intended to afford a prompt response to reports of non-sexual harassment and discrimination, to maintain confidentiality and fairness consistent with applicable legal requirements, and to impose appropriate sanctions on violators of College policy. Bellin College promptly and thoroughly investigates and resolves complaints alleging non-sexual harassment and discrimination.

Bellin College offers resources and support to all College community members experiencing concerns of harassment and discrimination misconduct. We encourage individuals to make the college aware of these concerns so that support and resources may be offered. The Discrimination/Harassment Complaint Form can be used to report a concern of misconduct. This form is located at https://www.bellincollege.edu/campus-life/student-services/policies-and- procedures/ . In an emergency, please always call 911.

This policy applies to all College community members. Vendors, independent contractors, and other outside parties who conduct business with the College through affiliation and other agreements will be expected to comply with this policy as well, as specified by the terms of any contract or agreement between the College and such third party.

Bellin College believes that everyone should be treated with respect and dignity and that any form of harassment and/or discrimination is a violation of human dignity. The College condemns harassment and discrimination and maintains a “zero-tolerance” for it. Students, faculty, and staff have the right to work and learn free of harassment and discrimination. The College will take all reasonable efforts to prevent and promptly correct instances of harassment and/or discrimination. Additionally, students, faculty, and staff have the right to a structured process for resolving problems, complaints or grievances relating to the execution of institutional policies.
