* Sexual Harassment Policy

Sexual Harassment is a violation of Section 503 of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It is Lordland College's policy that all its employees/ students have a right to work in an environment free from sexual harassment in any form. Such conduct (sexual harassment) may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination. No manager or supervisor(instructor) shall threaten or insinuate, either explicitly or otherwise to an employee/student that refusal to submit to sexual advances will adversely affect employees'/students' employment, assignment, promotion, transfer, evaluation, wages, or any other term or condition of employment/enrollment.

Sexual Harassment is defined as:
  • Unwelcomed physical or verbal contact;
  • Sexually explicit language or gestures;
  • Uninvited or unwanted sexual advances;
  • An offensive overall environment, including the use of vulgar language, the presence of sexually explicit photographs or other materials, and the telling of sexual stories or jokes.

Lordland College prohibits other sexually harassing conduct in the workplace/ college, whether committed by supervisors, non supervisory employees, subcontractors, students, or vendors. This includes: repeated sexual advances, propositions, unwanted flirtations, continual or repeated verbal abuse of a sexual nature; graphic verbal commentaries about a person's body; gestures; or the display in the workplace/ college of sexually suggestive objects or pictures. Any employee/student who believes that he/she has been a victim of sexual harassment in the workplace/college should notify his/her supervisor and follow the grievance procedures provided by this organization for the filing of sexual harassment complaints.

* Policy on Sexual Assault

The term sexual assault includes, but is not limited to: rape, acquaintance rape, sexual battery, forced sodomy, forced-oral copulation, rape by a foreign object, or threat of sexual assault. Students, faculty and staff who are victims of a sexual assault committed upon the grounds of the College, or upon off-campus grounds or facilities maintained by affiliated student organizations, are required by law to be advised of specified-remedial information which should include any treatment which may be available.
Rape is the most prevalent, serious-violent crime committed on college campuses. Rape, including acquaintance rape, or any other form of sexual assault, will not be tolerated by Lordland College. Where there is evidence that campus-related sexual assault has been committed, severe campus disciplinary action will be initiated. Such campus disciplinary action may include, after due process, the possibility of dismissal, suspension or disenrollment. Additionally, where the victim initiates criminal action, the perpetrator is subject to criminal penalties which may include fines and imprisonment.

* Change or Cancellation of a Class

Should enrollments drop unusually low in any one class, the college may, at its option, cancel that class and advise the remaining students to relocate to one of the other available classes. In the unforeseen cancellation of a class session, the college, at its option, may reschedule the class on a weekday or a Saturday. This will always be done giving the maximum amount of prior notice possible.

* Teacher and Student Ratio

An instructor is present for all classes and all efforts are made to keep student-to-teacher ratios low.
