Disability Discrimination/Harassment

​State and federal law prohibit disability discrimination. Disability discrimination as defined by law is conduct that is directed at an individual because of his/her mental/physical disability or that of his/her spouse and that subjects the individual to different treatment by agents or employees without legitimate non-discriminatory reason so as to interfere with or limit the ability of the individual to participate in, or benefit from, the services, activities, or privileges provided by the College or otherwise adversely affects the individual's employment or education.

Disability harassment is a form of discrimination, which is prohibited by state and federal law. Disability harassment is defined as verbal or physical conduct that is directed at an individual because of his/her mental/physical disability or that of his/her spouse and that is sufficiently severe, pervasive, or persistent so as to have the purpose or effect of creating a hostile work or educational environment. Disability harassment may occur in a variety of relationships, including faculty and student, supervisor and employee, student and student, staff and student, employee and employee, and other relationships with other persons having business at or visiting the College.
