Sexual Harassment

Western Piedmont Community College is committed to providing a classroom and workforce environment free from sexual harassment. Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination, illegal under state and federal law and a violation of College policy. Sexual harassment may affect any member of the College community—students, faculty and staff. Complaints are dealt with promptly, and appropriate action is taken.

Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to learn more about their rights and responsibilities with regard to this issue. Any inquiries students may make will be handled with professionalism and confidentiality. Students may contact the Dean of Student Services in Hildebrand Hall or at 828-448-3178. Employees may contact the Director of Human Resources in Moore Hall or at 828-448-3126. Guidelines for filing a grievance are found in the Catalog, Student Handbook and in the Policy Manual.
