    Discrimination Complaint Form

  • My Rights in an Investigation

    Members of the CCC community, guests and visitors have the right to be free from all forms of sex and gender based discrimination. Examples of which can include acts of sexual violence, sexual harassment, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. All members of the campus community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others.

    Once CCC has notice of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct, they will take immediate and appropriate steps to investigate what occurred. CCC will take prompt and effective action to end the discrimination or harassment, prevent its recurrence and remedy the effects upon the victim and community.
