Mt. San Antonio College has established guidelines for resolving all types of discrimination, harassment, retaliation and sexual violence complaints. There are several early resolution options, depending on the circumstances, including educational programs for targeted campus units or for particular individuals. Where early resolution is unsuccessful or inappropriate, a formal complaint may be filed and a formal investigation undertaken. There is no prescribed sequence, so choosing one option first does not prevent a complainant from choosing a different option for resolution a later time. For complete information on Mt. San Antonio Community College District's policies and procedures regarding the District's commitment to providing an academic and work environment free of unlawful discrimination, harassment and retaliation (DHR), please see the District's Annual Notice. To file a formal complaint of unlawful discrimination, harassment or retaliation, please complete the Unlawful Discrimination Complaint Form.
Reporting Concerns or Complaints
Because complaints of discrimination, harassment (including sexual misconduct), and
sexual violence are most effectively addressed at the earliest possible stage, Mt.
San Antonio College encourages early reporting of concerns or complaints regarding
harassment. If you believe you have been harassed, you are encouraged to discuss your
options and to learn about Mt. San Antonio College procedures by contacting (909)
274-4225. You may obtain advice without filing a complaint. Unreasonable delay in
reporting harassment or failure to utilize Mt. San Antonio College’s complaint resolution
procedures may affect your legal rights.
A number of governmental agencies also accept complaints of discrimination and harassment, including the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (related to employment); the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (related to employment); and the Office for Civil Rights, US Department of Education (related to student complaints).
