Sexual Harassment Policy:

                H. Councill Trenholm State Technical College affirms its commitment to ensuring an environment for all employees and students which is fair, humane, and respectful.  Therefore, the College will not tolerate any verbal or physical conduct that constitutes sexual harassment of any employee or student.

           

Such behaviors are prohibited by Federal regulations, which state:

           

            “Harassment on the basis of sex is a violation of Section 703 of Title VII.  Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual behaviors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassments when (1) submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual’s employment, (2) submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for employment decisions affecting such individual, or (3) such conduct has the purpose or effect of substantially interfering with an individual’s work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment.”

 

            H. Councill Trenholm State Technical College deplores such conduct as an abuse of authority, and thus it is an official institutional policy that sexual harassment of employees and/or students will not be tolerated.  The College accepts the proposition that sexual harassment, like any civil rights violation, generates a harmful environment.  The administration of the College will act positively to investigate alleged harassment and to affect remedy when an allegation is determined to be valid.

 

            Complaints about sexual harassment should be registered in the office of the Title IX Coordinator on your campus.

Academic Dishonesty Policy:

The primary goal of H. Councill Trenholm State Technical College is the promotion of an atmosphere conducive to studying and learning.  Those conditions and actions that encourage scholarship are applauded; those conditions and actions that deter or discourage intellectual growth and development are deplored.  Therefore, ‘Academic Dishonesty’ is defined as follows:

 

1.      Cheating on an exercise, test, problem, practice or examination submitted by a student to meet course requirements.  Cheating includes, but is not limited to: the use of unauthorized aids (such as crib sheets, written materials, drawing, etc.); copying from another student’s work; soliciting, giving and/or receiving unauthorized aid orally or in writing; or similar action contrary to the principles of academic honesty.

2.      Plagiarism on an assigned paper, theme, report or other material submitted to meet course requirements.  Plagiarism is the act of using, in one’s own work, the work of another without indicating that source.

3.      Use of tests or papers prepared by commercial or non-commercial agents and submitted as a student’s own work.

 

Charges of academic dishonesty made against a student by a faculty member must follow the principles of due process.  Faculty members must bring charges against a student in writing. A faculty member shall not give the grade ‘F’ or any punitive punishment for academic dishonesty unless guilt is established through the due process procedure.
