Board of Trustees Policy

Board of Trustees Policy on the Enhancement of Positive Human Relations

Essential to the purpose and mission of Kansas City Kansas Community College is the enhancement of positive human relations within the institution. Discriminatory attitudes and behaviors, whether intentional or unintentional, reduce this College's effectiveness. The Board of Trustees of KCKCC affirms its responsibility to maintain a harassment-free campus environment. Any employee or student that exhibits or participates in deliberate or unwitting behaviors that are offensive or discriminatory to individuals with reference to their race, gender, age, ethnicity, national origin or disability will be subject to disciplinary action which may result in suspension or dismissal from the institution.

History

The Intercultural Center was created following years of research and work completed by the Task Force for Intercultural Education in 1990. For Kansas City Kansas Community College our local communities represent a microcosm of our larger society. The college has a unique role to play in the enhancement of our campus and the development of student leaders. As the college's population becomes more diverse the college must be prepared to respond to this diversity in positive ways.
