or respondent does not agree with the decision, he/she may appeal to the president
within ten business days.
Step III. Appeal: (President)
The president or his/her designee (someone other than the
area vice president involved in the“Decision”) either makes a final determination or convenes
a review committee. If a review committee is convened, a chair is selected by the president
or his/her designee. The complainant and respondent each select a committee member
fromwithin the college community. (Any committee member selected will have had no
involvement in the Informal Resolution, the“Investigation and Recommendation,”or the
“Decision.”) The committee must present a recommendation to the president within thirty
business days of the appeal to the president. The president or his/her designee (someone
other than the area vice president involved in the“Decision”) reviews the information from
the investigation and the review committee’s recommendation and renders a final decision
within ten business days.
III. Sanctions
Appropriate remedial and/or discipline action up to and including dismissal from the
college will be implemented against individuals found to have violated this policy.
IV. Prohibitions
Persons who knowingly fabricate allegations of harassment, discrimination, or retaliation
violate this policy. In such instances, the complainant will be subject to disciplinary
action. However, failure to prove a claim of harassment, discrimination, or retaliation
does not constitute proof of a false and/or malicious accusation.
Individuals who withhold information, purposely provide inaccurate facts, or otherwise
hinder an investigation of misconduct shall be subject to disciplinary action.
V. Confidentiality of Proceedings
Although absolute confidentiality cannot be promised, the highest degree of
confidentiality possible will be maintained by the college to protect the parties involved
in these investigations. Only those persons who have a need to know for purposes of
the investigation or resolution of the complaint shall be informed of the matter. Any
individual who releases information relating to the complaint or the investigation during
the course of the investigation to unauthorized individuals may be subject to disciplinary
action. A complainant or respondent may seek procedural or legal advice from
supervisors or consultants as long as conversations remain confidential.
