Attachment: RRPR/HROG 3-50b - Civil Rights Grievance and Investigation Process
Definitions:

Red Rocks Community College ensures that employees and students shall not be subjected to unlawful discrimination and/or harassment on the basis of sex/gender, race, color, age, creed, national or ethnic origin, physical or mental disability, veteran status, pregnancy status, religion or sexual orientation or any other category protected by law in employment conditions or educational programs or activities. (CCCS Board Policy 3-120 & 4-120)

RRCC recognizes that the quality of instruction and educational opportunities for all are enhanced when the diversity of the community served is represented in the student population and workforce. The Board also recognizes that women and minorities have been historically underutilized in the higher education work force.

RRCC does not permit discrimination or harassment in our work environment, educational programs and activities.  RRCC can respond to discrimination and/or harassment only if it is aware of the allegations made.  Further, RRCC can more effectively investigate the sooner the allegation is brought to its attention.  Any employee or student who believes they have been subjected to discrimination and/or harassment based on federal or state civil rights laws should follow RRCC procedure RRPR/HROG 3-50b.
