Sexual Harassment Policy

LCCC is committed to a consistent effort in maintaining an environment free of sexual harassment and all forms of sexual intimidation and exploitation. In its goal to create an environment for all students, employees and visitors which is fair and free of coercion, the College has adopted a sexual harassment policy with accompanying procedures as the basis for community education and complaint resolution.

Sexual harassment cannot and will not be tolerated at LCCC. Sexual harassment is a form of discrimination in violation of College policy and Title VII of the Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 (as amended), Title IX of the 1972 Educational Amendments and Section 4112 of the Ohio Revised Code.  Sexual harassment has the potential of threatening an individual's academic performance, economic livelihood, career advancement, psychological and total well-being and is prohibited by this policy.

Sexual harassment is defined as any unwelcome sexual advance, request for sexual favors and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when: 

  1. Submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly as a term or condition of instruction, employment or participation in any other Lorain County Community College activity; 
  2. Submission to, or rejection of, such conduct by an individual is used as a basis for evaluation in making academic or personnel decisions affecting that individual; or 
  3. Such gender based conduct has the purpose or effect of substantially interfering with an individual's performance or creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive working and learning environment. 
  4. A complaint of sexual harassment must be filed with the Human Resources office or Campus Security within 180 days of the most recent incident.
