Responsible Department: Human Resources
Date Approved/Amended: December 2, 2010


The Board is committed to creating an inviting, safe and healthy place to work and learn where our day-to-day interactions are based upon respect.  Employees of Houston Community College are expected to uphold the highest ethical and professional standards for personal conduct and work performance, contributing to a positive, respectful working and learning environment free from harassment, threats, intimidation, violence or any other misconduct.  The policies and related procedures that follow in this section further outline these expectations.

Any person (employee, student, vendor, visitor, community member, etc.) who intimidates, threatens, or exhibits violent or disruptive behavior while on campus or when acting on behalf of HCC away from campus will be immediately removed from the classroom/workplace.
