Policy for Discrimination, Harassment, Retaliation and Sexual Misconduct Complaints

Policy Statement

The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton (UACCM) is committed to providing an environment that emphasizes the dignity and worth of every member of its community and that is free from harassment and discrimination based upon race, color, religion, national origin, service in the uniformed services (as defined in state and federal law), veteran status, sex, age, pregnancy, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability or genetic information.  Such an environment is necessary to a healthy learning, working and living atmosphere.  Accordingly, all acts of discrimination, harassment, retaliation and sexual misconduct as defined by this Policy are prohibited.

Jurisdiction

Title IX protects the College community from sexual discrimination, harassment and misconduct in a school’s education programs and activities. Title IX protects the College community in connection with all academic, educational, extracurricular, and other College programs, whether those programs take place on College property, in College transportation, at a class or training program sponsored by the College at another location or elsewhere.

This Policy shall not be construed or applied to restrict academic freedom at the College, nor shall it be construed to restrict constitutionally protected expression.

Consistent with state and federal law, reasonable accommodation will be provided to persons with disabilities.
