General Institutional Information

Combating Sexual Harassment and Discrimination (CUNY Manual Policies 5.061, 6.02, 6.09, 7.142)

Guttman Community College seeks to create and maintain a safe environment in which all members of the University community—students, faculty and staff—can learn and work free from sexual harassment, violence or discrimination. It is Guttman’s policy to admit and provide services for students, and to recruit, employ, retain and promote staff, without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, ethnicity, ancestry, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, marital or partnership status, disability, genetic information, alienage, citizenship, military or veteran status, pregnancy (including childbirth and related conditions), status as a victim of domestic or other sexual violence, or any other legally prohibited basis, in accordance with federal, state and city law.

Guttman’s policies on workplace and domestic violence apply to all acts of violence that occur in the workplace or classroom. The school’s sexual harassment policy prohibits many forms of unwelcome conduct, including sexual assault, partner violence and the physical or electronic stalking of students or staff.

These policies prohibit retaliation for reporting or opposing harassment or discriminatory behavior. In addition, during the course of any investigation or disciplinary process, if any person or third party acting on his/her behalf attempts to contact another participant in the process so as to harass, intimidate, threaten or coerce that individual in any way, Guttman reserves the right to bring disciplinary action against both individuals.
