Non-Discrimination/Non-Harassment Policy Statement

It is the policy of Indian River State College and its District Board of Trustees that each employee and student be allowed to participate in college programs and activities, including employment, in a discrimination and harassment free environment. Acts of discrimination and harassment of any nature based on one’s race, color, nationality, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, veteran status, or genetic information is strictly prohibited.

Harassment is a by-product and a form of discrimination. Preventing it is the responsibility of the entire College. Accordingly, Indian River State College encourages all employees and students who believe they are being subjected to discrimination based on harassment to follow the Administrative Procedures, AP 3.13 and AP 3.131, for reporting complaints. The College takes these matters seriously and will act promptly and equitably to investigate and resolve matters of concern.
