Brookdale Community College is an Equal Opportunity Affirmative Action institution.  No person in whatever relationship with the College, shall be subjected to discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, creed, color, nationality, national origin, ancestry, age, sex/gender (including pregnancy), marital status, civic union status, domestic partnership status, gender identity or expression, familial status, affectional or sexual orientation, atypical hereditary cellular or blood trait, genetic information, liability for service in the Armed Forces of the United States, disability, (including perceived, physical, mental, and/or intellectual disability)or other protected categories or activity (i.e., opposition to prohibited discrimination or participation in the complaint process). Sexual harassment is a form of unlawful gender discrimination and, likewise, will not be tolerated.

Any student, who feels she/he has been the victim of discrimination or sexual harassment, should bring these concerns to the attention of Pat Golden, Diversity Management Officer located in Room 115 of Larrison Hall, 732-224-2284 or James Palumbo, Dean of Enrollment Development and Student Affairs, located in MAC 106, 732-224-2215. The Dean is the designated Section 504/ADA and Title IX Coordinator for all student matters.

If a resolution cannot be reached informally students have the right to file a formal complaint with the Diversity Management Officer. Such complaints will be subject to an impartial investigation into the alleged harassment or discrimination by the Diversity Management Officer.

Upon completion of the investigation, the Diversity Management Officer will prepare a written report which may include a summary of the complaint, summary of the facts, an analysis of the allegations and facts and a finding. The investigatory report will be submitted to the Dean of Human Resources, Patricia Sensi, unless the Dean has been actively involved in the investigation. In this case, the report will be submitted to the President, Dr. Peter Burnham. The Dean will review the investigatory report and make a determination as to whether the allegations of a violation of the College’s policy prohibiting discrimination, harassment and hostile work environments has been substantiated. If violation occurred, the Dean will determine the appropriate corrective measures necessary to remedy the situation, including disciplinary action. The Dean will issue a final letter of determination to all parties, containing the results of the investigation.
