                                             Lee College was founded in 1934 as a part of the Goose Creek Independent School District.
Employment & Procedures Manual               The main campus at the corner of Lee Drive and Gulf Street in Baytown was first used in
                                             1951. Today it is a 37-acre campus with 31 buildings containing 81 classrooms, 43

Organization Chart    (.pdf)                 The College separated from the school district in 1965 and now has its own President and
                                             Board of Regents. In 1966 the College began the first program in Texas to award associate
                                             degrees to prison inmates. That program is now centered at the Lee College/Huntsville
                                             Center and is the largest in Texas, serving more than 1,200 inmates annually. Other off-

                                             Crosby, Hardin, Huffman, Dayton, Hull-Daisetta, and Mont Belvieu, as well as through the
                                             Internet and television.

                                           Policy and Procedures for Hiring Part-time Instructors

                                               1. If a sufficient applicant pool of appropriately qualified part-time instructors exists,
                                                  these positions do not have to be advertised.
                                               2. The Human Resource Office will conduct a criminal history and education background
                                                  check on all part-time faculty members.

                                               3. The division chair is responsible for verification of work experience and/or contacting
                                                  professional references.

                                               4. The appropriate instructional dean, based on the recommendation of the division chair,
                                                  hires part-time instructors.

                                               5. Part-time instructors must meet the same credential requirements as full-time
                                                  instructors. These credential requirements vary according to course taught.

                                               6. Part-time instructors who apply for full-time positions will compete with all other
                                                  candidates for those positions.

                                                        important for instructors to meet each class. However, if an absence is
Organization Chart    (.pdf)                            unavoidable, the instructor should make arrangements with the division chair for
                                                        anticipated absences. If a sudden illness or emergency arises, faculty must notify
                                                        the lead instructor, division chair, and/or the division secretary as early as
                                                        possible prior to the absence so that students can be notified. If unable to reach
                                                        the lead instructor, division chair or divisio secretary, instructors should call the
                                                        appropriate instructional dean: Academic, 281/425-6445, Applied Science

                                                        benefits of accrued/paid leave and therefore will not be paid for absences.

                                                      1. Census Day Class Roles

                                                      State funding is based on student enrollment on the institutional twelfth class
                                                      day/census day (or its equivalent in less than 16-week semesters); therefore, all
                                                      faculty members are required to certify that the class list in the computer
                                                      actually represents students who are in attendance. Instructors should receive
                                                      these forms before the end of the fourth week of the semester. They must be
                                                      signed and returned to the Admissions and Records Office.

                                                      2. Attendance Records

                                                      Instructors are no longer required to keep and submit daily attendance records.
                                                      However for a variety of reasons, instructors are encouraged to keep some
                                                      record of individual student attendance activity each term.

                                                      Grading and withdrawal policies vary by program. Depending on the division
                                                      policy, students who have been absent from class for three hours or three
                                                      sessions may be dropped by the instructor for non-attendance with grades of "F"
                                                      or "W2" (instructor-initiated) drop.

                                                      Developmental classes have special attendance requirements. Instructors should
                                                      check with their division chairs. To report excessive absences of students in
                                                      developmental classes, instructors may call the Hotline at ext. 6222 (425-6222)
                                                      and leave a message. Non-attendance drop cards are available in the Admissions
                                                      and Records Office in Moler Hall or from the division secretary.

                                           Explained Student Absences

                                                      At least one week prior to an activity, students representing Lee College and/or
                                                      participating in Lee College-sponsored activities are to provide their instructors
                                                      with a written explanation and dates for the absence, signed by the appropriate
                                                      sponsors. Sponsored activities include trips or events officially funded by the
                                                      College.

                                                      Students are responsible for all assignments and material during the absence, as
                                                      well as exams and assignments immediately following the absence.

                                           Division Meetings and Functions

                                                      Part-time faculty are invited to attend division meetings and other functions, but
                                                      attendance is not required and there is no monetary compensation for attending.
                                                      All new part-time instructors, however, are required to attend one orientation
                                                      session their first semester. All other part time instructors are required to attend
                                                      one orientation session annually. New and returning part time instructors will be
                                                      notified of the time and place by their division chairs.

                                                      Your efforts in working with our service area students are vital to the success of
                                                      Lee College programs. Each of you fills a significant position in the overall
                                                      mission of the College

                                                          1. If you are teaching a dual enrollment class at Table 3: High School Contacts
                                                             a high school during regular school hours,        School               Number
                                                             you must notify the high school itself, as        Anahuac HS           409/267-6491
                                                             well as your division if you cannot meet          Barbers Hill HS      281/576-2221
                                                             your class. Contact numbers are listed below. Crosby HS                281/328-9237
                                                             This helps the high school to schedule a          Dayton HS            936/258-2510
                                                             substitute for your class; you might provide      Hargrave HS          281/324-1845
                                                             some suggestions on work that students            Liberty HS           936/336-6483
                                                             could do in your absence.
                                                          2. Since there is no supervisor on-site for evening and weekend classes, you must
                                                             notify your division or the dean’s office if you are unable to meet your class. If
                                                             there is time, we will try to contact your students to preclude their driving a long
                                                             way to encounter an empty classroom. See above listing for appropriate phone
                                                             numbers.
                                                          3. Leave everything in your classroom undisturbed. Anything you or your students
                                                             move should be returned to its place.
                                                          4. See that any trash is placed in proper receptacles and rooms left in order for the
                                                             next morning.
                                                          5. Respect local policies. For instance, smoking is not allowed anywhere in the
                                                             building or on the entire grounds at Liberty High School. Those who teach at
                                                             other sites should know and follow the local smoking policy. Likewise, these
                                                             locations may have parking policies for evening students. These policies should
                                                             be followed by instructors and announced to students.
                                                          6. The teachers’ lounge may or may not be open for your use during class breaks.
                                                             If you use the lounge, again, leave it as you found it.
                                                          7. Large printing orders may be taken to the Lee College Print Shop. This requires
                                                             advance planning, but the Print Shop is generally fast, dependable and
                                                             inexpensive. Your division secretary will help you with a Press Work Order. If you
                                                             have not allowed enough time to use the Print Shop, there is a copier in the
                                                             main campus library. Check at the front desk for a copier card available for off-
                                                             campus teachers.
                                                          8. Some media equipment is available on site. To request or reserve media
                                                             equipment, call 281/425-6337. Note the equipment you need, location, the date,
                                                             and your room number. We will arrange to have it set up for you. Please provide
                                                             at least two days’ notice.

                                                                If there are problems with the equipment, you may ask whether a teacher in a
                                                                nearby room can share with you whatever is available.

                                                           Please inform us of any malfunctioning equipment or any other difficulty you
                                                           encounter at your off-campus site. The deans’ office is your most direct line of
                                                           communication/assistance. After office hours, you can leave a voice mail
                                                           message at 281/425-6444. Include your telephone number. Problems can only
                                                           be corrected if we know about them.
                                                        9. If you are teaching dual enrollment, keep in mind that you will submit grades
                                                           both to Lee College and to the high school. During a semester, there will
                                                           typically be three marking periods, for which the high school must have grades.
                                                           Keep in touch with the high school’s counseling office regarding grade reporting,
                                                           textbook policies (some districts provide and reuse them) and special events
                                                           (pep rallies, TAAS testing, etc.), which might affect your class time.
                                                       10. Keys for off-campus sites should be returned promptly after semester’s end.
                                                           Keys belonging to the high school should be returned to the high school.

                                                      We appreciate your serving at our “away” campuses and hope you enjoy the
                                                      students you teach there.

                                                      Part-time faculty are expected to dress appropriately to the profession for which
                                                      they are preparing students.

                                           Emergency Procedures

                                                      The handling of all emergency situations is covered in detail in the Lee College
                                                      Emergency Procedures Handbook included in the part-time faculty packet. If
                                                      available, red emergency phones inside College buildings can be used to contact
                                                      Security directly. The following covers only the most common emergency
                                                      situations:

                                                      In the event of car trouble or locked car doors, both instructors and students
                                                      should call ext. 6475 or 6888 during regular business hours and Security will
                                                      assist.

                                                      In the event an employee or student has a medical problem or injury, the
                                                      instructor should try to determine the extent of the problem. If an ambulance is
                                                      needed, the instructor should call 9-911 from a regular phone and report the
                                                      situation and location immediately. Instructors should not transport students to
                                                      the hospital or medical facilities. Students are required to pay for their
                                                      ambulance fees.

                                                      Should someone request/insist on seeing/locating a student at Lee College by
                                                      coming on campus, the instructor should refer that person to the office of the

                                           Texas Academic Skills Program (TASP)

                                                      Since its inception in 1989, TASP has evolved into a complex set of rules that
                                                      continue to change as colleges and state agencies apply the policy to individual
                                                      cases. To help instructors answer students' questions regarding TASP, an
                                                      overview of the current rules is available in the current College catalog. Any

                                                      Additional information on placement tests may be found in the college catalog
                                                      and/or the course schedule.

                                           Mandatory Placement in Developmental Courses

                                                      Students who demonstrate deficiencies on the TASP will be required to enroll in
                                                      developmental courses if they are taking more than five semester credit hours.
                                                      Since the Reading, Mathematics, and English composition standards vary across
                                                      programs, students with the same placement test scores but different majors
                                                      may be considered to have different "deficiencies." Students whose placement
                                                      test scores and choice of majors cause them to be placed in developmental
                                                      classes must enroll in these classes each semester until their deficiency has been
                                                      resolved.

                                                      At Lee College, mandatory placement in developmental courses does not prevent
                                                      students from taking classes, which apply to their degrees, providing that they
                                                      meet all course prerequisites and enroll in appropriate developmental courses at
                                                      the same time.

                                           Withdrawal From All Classes

                                                      Students who take developmental courses and do not meet attendance
                                                      requirements will be withdrawn from all classes at the end of the term.

                                           Textbooks and Supplies

                                                      Some divisions have copies of textbooks and other supplies for faculty available
                                                      within the division area. In other divisions, they are available through the Lee
                                                      College Bookstore. Part-time faculty should check with their division secretary for
                                                      specific procedures.

                                                      According to Board Policy, during the term of employment, an instructor shall not
                                                      act as an agent or attorney for any textbook publishing company selling
                                                      textbooks in Texas. Acceptance of such agency or attorneyship shall by operation
                                                      of law forfeit the person's position with the College.

                                           Workload

                                                      Part-time faculty assignments will be no more than 10 lecture hours after
                                                      conversion of lab and clinical hours to lecture hours (or 67% of a full teaching
                                                      load) during fall and spring terms or the equivalent during summer term(s). The
                                                      President must approve additional hours. Lecture and lab hours are paid at their
                                                      respective rates. Practicum courses are paid at the lecture hour rate based on
                                                      the number of students. Private music lessons (applied music) are paid at the lab
                                                      hour rate.

                                                      Only the President has the authority to offer a temporary full-time appointment.
                                                      Letters-of-appointment are assigned only to those faculty who are on grant
                                                      monies, employed at the Huntsville Center or other off-campus locations, or for
                                                      temporary semester assignments.

                                           Student Records

                                                      Student records are housed in the Admissions and Records Office in Moler Hall.
                                                      Students' records must be protected. Students' right to privacy is assured in part
                                                      by federal law. The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) and
                                                      its amendments specify the types of student information, which can be released
                                                      to the public, including parents and spouses, without the student's expressed
                                                      consent. In general, one of the stipulations of this right to privacy is that
                                                      instructors do NOT post grades or release grades to anyone other than the
                                                      student. Instructors should check with division chairs before releasing or
                                                      publishing any information about students.

                                                        Academic Integrity

                                                                  The principles enumerated below have been among the cornerstones
                                                                  of academic integrity for years. We reaffirm them here to provide a

                                                                      1. We fully accept the responsibility of college teachers to establish
                                                                         and maintain standards of excellence in the courses they teach.
                                                                      2. We recognize the need for consistency and fairness in the

                                                                      3. We fully recognize the need to maintain public confidence in the

                                                                      b. The mastery of a subject makes a faculty member a qualified

                                                      instructional purposes when an employee is directly representing the College, the

                                                      the offense has been committed. Students shall be given a fair opportunity to
                                                      demonstrate innocence in a hearing before school officials. Students are entitled
                                                      to due process in disciplinary hearings, including being given adequate notice of
                                                      the hearing and definite charges in advance. (See Board Policy FMA [Local])

                                                      on the basis of age, race, religion, color, gender, national origin, veteran status,
                                                      or disabilities will be afforded prompt and equitable resolution beginning at the
                                                      first possible level.

                                                      The student may be represented at any level of the complaint.

                                                      An instructor or College employee who is the subject of a student complaint may

                                                      If the complaint involves a problem with an instructor, the student shall discuss
                                                      the matter with the instructor before requesting a conference with the division

                                                      issue must request a conference with the division chair. If the complaint is not
                                                      resolved to the student’s satisfaction, he/she may proceed to Level 3.

                                             Legal Authority

                                                        Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination, which is prohibited by Title
                                                        VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, by Title IX of the Education Amendments of
                                                        1972, and by the Texas Commission on Human Rights Act.

                                                        Sexual harassment by a public servant is a criminal offense under Section 39.03
                                                        of the Texas Penal Code. Sexual harassment may also be indecent exposure,
                                                        public lewdness, assault, or sexual assault under Chapters 21 and 22 of the
                                                        Texas Penal Code.

                                             Definition

                                                        Sexual harassment may involve the behavior of a person of either sex against a
                                                        person of the opposite or same sex, and occurs when such behavior constitutes
                                                        unwelcome sexual advances, unwelcome requests for sexual favors, and other
                                                        unwelcome verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature where:

                                                        Submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or
                                                        condition of a person's employment and/or academic advancement;

                                                        Submission to or rejection of such conduct by a person is used as the basis for
                                                        decisions affecting a person's employment and/or academic standing;

                                                        Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with a
                                                        person's work and/or academic performance or creating an intimidating, hostile,
                                                        or offensive work, learning, or social environment.

                                             Examples of Prohibited Behavior

                                                        Prohibited acts that constitute sexual harassment may take a variety of forms.
                                                        Sometimes sexual harassment involves a single serious incident whereas at
                                                        other times, multiple incidents are required to meet the standards of the
                                                        definition of sexual harassment. Examples of the kinds of conduct that may
                                                        constitute sexual harassment under the definition above include, but are not

                                                      complainant has maintained may be helpful during the investigation of a
                                                      complaint. Anyone may seek advice, information or counseling on matters
                                                      related to sexual harassment without having to lodge a formal complaint.
                                                      Personnel who feel they are being harassed, or are uncertain as to whether what
                                                      they are experiencing is sexual harassment, are encouraged to talk with
                                                      whomever they feel comfortable. The following people, however, have received
                                                      special training in dealing with sexual harassment issues: deans, division chairs,
                                                      department heads, the counseling center staff, the Human Resources officer, and
                                                      the sexual harassment coordinators, Dennis Topper and Rosemary Coffman.

                                                      The college has a legal responsibility to investigate any complaint to its
                                                      satisfaction. Those who report incidents that College officials determine
                                                      constitute sexual harassment under this policy should understand that their
                                                      allegations may be investigated on behalf of all College students and employees
                                                      whether or not they personally choose to pursue the complaint.

                                           No Retaliation

                                                      No person may be subject to restraint, interference, coercion, or reprisal for
                                                      action taken in good faith that seeks advice concerning sexual harassment,
                                                      which files a sexual harassment complaint, which serves as a witness or a panel

                                                      action may be taken against any person retaliating in violation of this policy, and
                                                      such intimidation or interference should be reported immediately to a sexual
                                                      harassment coordinator.

                                           Malicious, False Accusations

                                                      A complainant whose allegations are found to be both false and brought with
                                                      malicious intent will be subject to disciplinary action which, for employees, may
                                                      include, but is not limited to, written warning, demotion, transfer, suspension, or
                                                      dismissal. Disciplinary actions for students making malicious false accusations
                                                      include, but are not limited to, written warning, removal from class, or expulsion.

                                           Consensual Relations Within the College Community

                                                      Because the College is entrusted with guiding students, judging their work,
                                                      giving grades for courses and making recommendations for students, instructors
                                                      and other College employees are in a delicate relationship of trust and power.
                                                      This relationship must not be jeopardized by possible doubts of intent, fairness of
                                                      professional judgment, or the appearance to other students of favoritism.

                                                      It is unwise and inappropriate; therefore, for College employees who have
                                                      romantic relationships with students to teach such students in a class, supervise
                                                      them as student assistants, or recommend them for awards or employment. It is
                                                      equally unwise and inappropriate for employees to form such relationships with
                                                      students in their classes or under their supervision. Prudence and the best
                                                      interest of the students dictate that in such circumstances of romantic
                                                      involvement, the students should be aided to find other instructional or
                                                      supervisory arrangements. Employees are warned that initial consent to a
                                                      romantic relationship does not preclude a charge of sexual harassment in the
                                                      future.

                                                      Likewise, supervisors can jeopardize the trust of those whom they supervise by
                                                      raising doubts of intent, fairness of professional judgment, or by creating an
                                                      appearance to other employees of favoritism if they form or maintain a romantic
                                                      relationship with an employee that they supervise. Such an involvement is
                                                      unwise and inappropriate, and supervisors are urged to avoid such relationships.
                                                      Supervisors are also warned that initial consent to a romantic relationship does
                                                      not preclude a charge of sexual harassment in the future.

                                           Procedures

                                                      The College provides several channels of communication and both informal and
                                                      formal complaint resolution procedures to address sexual harassment
                                                      complaints. It prefers to resolve complaints at the lowest possible level. When
                                                      advising procedures or informal procedures are followed, however, they do not
                                                      preempt other channels available within the College or to outside agencies or
                                                      courts. The College recommends that any faculty, staff, or student who feels that
                                                      he or she is being sexual harassed tell or otherwise immediately inform the
                                                      harasser that the conduct is unwelcome and must stop. However, such action is
                                                      not required, and in some circumstances it may not be feasible, may be
                                                      unsuccessful, or the individual may be uncomfortable dealing with the matter in
                                                      the manner. Therefore, the College has developed procedures and trained sexual
                                                      harassment coordinators and others to help ensure a harassment-free
                                                      environment. Advising

                                                      Any person seeking information and advice will be counseled as to the options
                                                      for action available under this policy. To the extent consistent with the College's
                                                      responsibility under the law and this policy, information disclosed through this
                                                      advising process will be held in confidence, unless and until the initiating
                                                      individual agrees that additional people must be informed in order to facilitate a
                                                      solution.

                                           Informal Complaints

                                                      After being advised, a student or employee may want to seek informal complaint
                                                      resolution, including mediation. The aim of informal complaint resolution is not to
                                                      determine whether there was intent to harass but to ensure that the alleged
                                                      offending behavior ceases and that the matter be resolved promptly at the
                                                      lowest possible level.

                                                      In all cases, an incident report will be filed with a sexual harassment coordinator.
                                                      If the College president or designee determines that disciplinary actions against
                                                      the accused are appropriate, the Formal Complaint procedures in this policy will
                                                      go into effect.

                                           Mediation

                                                      One of the possibilities for informal complaint resolution is mediation. The
                                                      complainant or the accused may ask for a mediated resolution between himself/
                                                      herself and the accused. The goal of the mediation procedure is to provide a
                                                      forum where the complainant and the accused can, with the aid of a third party,
                                                      come to a mutually agreed upon resolution. Consequently, mediation will occur
                                                      only if both the complainant and the accused are willing to participate in the
                                                      process and can agree on a mediator. A sexual harassment coordinator may
                                                      serve as mediator or suggest a third party such as a member of the Sexual
                                                      Harassment Committee to act as mediator. The results of the mediation will be
                                                      filed with the incident report.

                                           Formal Complaints

                                                      Formal complaints, reduced to writing, should be filed as soon as possible. Those
                                                      complaints will be handled in a timely manner.

                                                      Formal complaints of sexual harassment against an employee are filed with a
                                                      Sexual Harassment Coordinator. If the sexual harassment coordinators and the
                                                      appropriate dean(s), president, or Board of Regents determines that the initial
                                                      allegations are serious enough to necessitate the immediate removal or
                                                      reassignment of an employee during an investigation, an immediate meeting of a
                                                      Sexual Harassment Panel will be called, the case presented, and a majority vote
                                                      of those present will make recommendations on temporary moves or
                                                      suspensions to the president of the College. Nothing in this provision would
                                                      prohibit the College president or designee from immediately removing or
                                                      reassigning a student or employee.

                                                      The sexual harassment coordinators will conduct an investigation. The
                                                      coordinators will prepare a written report that makes findings of fact and
                                                      conclusions. Prior to issuing a report on the investigation, a coordinator will give
                                                      the accused a written copy of the complaint, allowing sufficient time for response
                                                      in writing. The accused will be specifically warned to avoid contact with the
                                                      complainant or witnesses and not to retaliate against the complainant in any
                                                      way. If the complaint is disputed, the sexual harassment coordinator(s) will
                                                      notify the Sexual Harassment Committee chair of the need for a panel from the
                                                      Sexual Harassment Committee.

                                                      The Sexual Harassment Committee chair, in consultation with the College
                                                      president, will appoint a panel of three persons from the committee, always
                                                      including at least one male and one female, whose task it is to review the results
                                                      of the investigation, make findings of fact and conclusions, and make

                                                      panels when students are involved.

                                                      The panel may find that the charges are false and malicious; dismiss the
                                                      complaint for lack of merit; find that the facts are inconclusive; find a
                                                      preponderance of the evidence indicates that the accused violated the College's
                                                      policy on sexual harassment and make recommendations to the president about
                                                      disciplinary action; or allow the parties to sign a written statement of agreement
                                                      resolving the differences between them. Further action by the College against
                                                      either party is not precluded by an agreement between the parties. The
                                                      recommendations of the panel will be rendered in writing to both parties and to
                                                      the College president. The president will accept, reject, or modify the panel's
                                                      recommendations and will take appropriate action.

                                           Complaints Against Students

                                                      Students who feel they have been subjected to sexual harassment by other
                                                      students should discuss their complaints with counselors, faculty members,
                                                      College administrators, or others whom they trust. The Counseling Center is
                                                      considered the central contact for sexual harassment complaints filed against
                                                      students. Counselors may attempt to resolve the complaint through informal
                                                      means or suggest mediation. All complaints, formal and informal, will be
                                                      forwarded to the sexual harassment coordinator(s). Counselors may also
                                                      accompany and advise students throughout formal or informal processes if
                                                      requested to do so by the students.

                                                      If a formal complaint is filed, it will be handled in the same manner as the formal
                                                      complaints described in the previous section. Cases involving a student who is
                                                      accused of sexual harassment will be handled in the same manner as complaints
                                                      against employees except the receipt of recommendations for the panel,
                                                      determination as to whether there has been a violation of policy, and the
                                                      application of appropriate disciplinary action will be handled by the Dean of
                                                      Student Development and Institutional Planning.

                                           Appeals

                                                      Employees or students may appeal the decision of the Dean of Student
                                                      Development and Institutional Planning or the College president by following
                                                      applicable College employment policies or student grievance procedures.

                                           Sexual Harassment Coordinators

                                                      The sexual harassment coordinators are a team of, one male and one female,
                                                      college employees appointed by the president on the recommendation of the
                                                      sexual harassment committee to two-year renewable terms. The chair of the
                                                      Sexual Harassment Committee and a vice-chair of the opposite sex, will serve as
                                                      alternate sexual harassment coordinators to insure that there is always a male
                                                      and female investigating any claim of sexual harassment. All four must undergo
                                                      training.

                                                      They shall have the following primary responsibilities:

                                                          2. Receive inquiries and complaints relating to sexual harassment and
                                                             maintain confidential records of all complaints,
                                                          3. Provide advice and assistance concerning the application of this policy and
                                                             procedure to complainants and accused,
                                                          4. Sit on the Sexual Harassment Committee without a vote,
                                                          5. Investigate all formal complaints of sexual harassment, present findings to

                                                             of goals during the year.

                                           Sexual Harassment Committee

                                                      The Sexual Harassment Committee should be widely representative of the entire
                                                      College. It shall consist of five faculty members (including at least one counselor)
                                                      appointed by the President for staggered three-year terms (with the possibility of
                                                      reappointment), five members of the non-instructional staff (including at least
                                                      one representative each from administrators, administrative support, Human
                                                      Resources, and classified staff) appointed by the President for staggered three-
                                                      year terms (with the possibility of reappointment), and three student members
                                                      appointed by the president for one-year renewable terms. Student members will
                                                      not participate in discussions or panels involving only employees but will always
                                                      participate in discussions involving students. Committee members will receive
                                                      ongoing training in dealing with sexual harassment complaints.

                                                      In addition to composing panels to make recommendations on sexual
                                                      harassment complaints, the Sexual Harassment Committee will review policy and
                                                      procedures relating to sexual harassment; will make recommendations to the
                                                      President on changing those policies as necessary; will review an annual report
                                                      on the incidence of sexual harassment in the College as required by the Office of
                                                      Civil Rights; and will review and propose educational and prevention activities on
                                                      sexual harassment.

                                           Confidentiality

                                                      Any formal complaint or informal discussion or mediation and all documents
                                                      relating to them will be kept strictly confidential to the extent permitted by law,
                                                      except that the appropriate administrative officers will be kept informed of
                                                      formal complaints. When each complaint is concluded, all documentation will be
                                                      sent to the sexual harassment coordinators to be retained as a sealed file in a
                                                      secure facility in the President's Office. Access will be limited to the Sexual
                                                      Harassment Coordinators, appropriate deans, and the president. However, all
                                                      findings of violations of the Sexual Harassment Policy and all sanctions imposed
                                                      shall also be added to the Human Resources file and may also be added to the
                                                      student file of any person found to be in violation of this policy.
