Harassment Policy

Central Penn is committed to providing an environment that is free of discrimination and unlawful harassment. Actions, words, jokes, or comments based on an individual’s sex, race, ethnicity, age, religion, physical appearance/ability or any other legally protected characteristic will not be tolerated.

Harassment (overt, subtly and/or virtual) is a form of misconduct that is demeaning
to another person, undermines the integrity of the person, and is strictly prohibited. Central Penn prohibits acts of retaliation against anyone involved in lodging a complaint of harassment. Conversely, Central Penn considers intentionally filing false reports
of harassment a violation of this policy. Anyone engaging in any type of harassment will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including permanent dismissal. Students experiencing any type of harassment should contact the Title IX Officer
at compliancedirector@centralpenn.edu immediately with details of the behaviors encountered so an investigation can be completed.

Gender Discrimination/Sexual Harassment Policy Statement

Central Penn maintains the principle that the campus should be a place of work and learning, free of all forms of gender discrimination, sexual harassment, intimidation, and exploitation. Should a student encounter an uncomfortable situation of this nature with another student or faculty/staff member, he or she should report it immediately to the Title IX Officer. Charges of sexual harassment will be promptly and thoroughly investigated.

Disability Harassment Policy

Central Penn is committed to providing an environment that is free of discrimination
and unlawful harassment. Actions, words, jokes, or comments based on an individual’s sex, race, ethnicity, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity expression, physical appearance/ability or any other legally protected characteristic will not be tolerated. Students experiencing disability harassment should contact the ADA Coordinator or the Academic Affairs office immediately with details of the behaviors being encountered so an investigation can be completed.
