SEX/GENDER HARASSMENT, DISCRIMINATION AND MISCONDUCT

Members of the LCNE community, as well as their guests and visitors, have the right to be free from all forms of sex/gender harassment, discrimination, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. All members of the campus community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. LCNE believes in a zero tolerance policy for gender-based misconduct. Zero tolerance means when an allegation of misconduct is brought to an appropriate administrator’s attention, protective and other remedial measures will be used to reasonably ensure that such conduct ends and is not repeated. LCNE’s zero tolerance policy also ensures that effects on the victim and community are remedied, including serious sanctions when a reporting party is found to have violated the policy.

Additionally, anonymous reports can be made by victims and/or third parties to the Title IX Coordinator. Please note that these anonymous reports may prompt a need for the College to investigate.

For additional information, please refer to the Sex/Gender Harassment, Discrimination, and Misconduct Policy and the Civil Rights Grievance Policy and Procedures in the Student Handbook.

STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

Lincoln College of New England (LCNE) does not discriminate or deny access to an otherwise qualified student with a disability. An “otherwise qualified” student with a disability is one who meets the essential institutional, academic and technical standards requisite to admission, participation, and completion of the College’s programs.

A student with a disability is defined as having a physical or mental impairment, having a history of such impairment, and/or being regarded as having such impairment that substantially limits one or more of the following major life activities: speaking, walking, seeing, hearing, breathing and/or learning.

Please refer to the College Catalog for the policy on students with disabilities.
