Discrimination and Harassment Policy

Rhodes College Statement

Discrimination and harassment on grounds of race, gender, color, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, genetic information, and national or ethnic origin are forms of misconduct that undermine the institutional mission of the College and thus will not be tolerated. All members of the College community are responsible for maintaining an environment of mutual respect for all persons.

The College’s policy on sexual harassment and assault is contained in a separate document. This document contains the College’s policy governing other forms of harassment as well as discrimination. The Director of Community Standards is responsible for ensuring that students are informed of this policy. The Dean of the Faculty and the Director of Human Resources are responsible for taking necessary steps to notify College faculty and staff of the provisions of this policy.

Students should report violations of discrimination or harassment to the Director of Community Standards for review and adjudication.

Rhodes College reserves the right to modify these policies and procedures as needed in order to maintain the environment of mutual respect for all persons that is an objective in issuing this present document.
