Non-Retaliation Policy

It is a violation of this policy for any person to retaliate against, interfere with, coerce or take any other adverse action against a College faculty member,  staff, trustee or student who makes a good faith report concerning violation of any College policy. Any complaint that retaliation has occurred will be investigated and discipline will be administered as deemed appropriate by the College under the circumstances.  Reports or complaints of retaliation may be made in accordance with the problem solving, grievance or reporting procedures set forth in the designated handbooks depending on the status (student, faculty or staff) of the complainant.
