Southeastern Community College reaffirms the principle that students and employees have a right to be free from any form of a sexual offense, both forcible and non-forcible. Sexual offenses are unlawful and prohibited. The college provides programs to promote the awareness and prevention of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking throughout the year. In compliance with federal law, specifically, the Jeanne Clery Act (Clery Act) and the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act (SaVE Act), the College prohibits the crimes of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking, as defined in the procedures which follow. This policy applies to all members of the College community (students, faculty, and staff) as well as contractors and visitors. Following an investigation, individuals who the College determines more likely than not engaged in these types of behaviors are subject to penalties up to and including dismissal from the College, regardless of whether they are also facing criminal or civil charges in a court of law.
