Harassment and Non-Discrimination

The commitment of Monmouth College to the most fundamental principles of academic freedom, equality of opportunity, and human dignity requires that decisions involving students and employees be based on merit and be free from discrimination in all its forms. Monmouth College does not tolerate harassment of any employee, student, visitor, or guest. Monmouth College will act to remedy all forms of harassment when reported.

Monmouth College does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, national origin, ancestry, disability, age, military service, marital status, sexual orientation, pregnancy, or other factors as prohibited by law.

The campus community should read and understand the importance of the College policy on Discriminatory Harassment. This policy applies to all College programs and activities. Monmouth College requires all students, faculty, and staff to complete Title IX training with additional 8-10 hours of training for the Equity Team for investigating or adjudicating alleged violations of the policy.

In addition, retaliation is strictly prohibited by Monmouth College. Retaliation is any action taken against any individual because that individual has, in good faith, reported or disclosed a complaint, testified, assisted or participated, or refused to participate in any manner in an investigation, proceeding or hearing under this policy. Acts of retaliation will result in disciplinary action independent of any sanction or interim measures imposed in response to the underlying allegations of discrimination/misconduct. All concerns regarding retaliation should be directed to the Equity Coordinator.
