The Inver Hills Theatre Department presents: The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)

Can you really cover thirty-seven Shakespeare plays in less than two hours? This fast-firing comedy does just that as it parodies all of the Shakespeare plays (plus the sonnets!). This play is full of energy as the characters run across the stage and keep you guessing how they will pull off the next play.  All 37 plays in an hour and a half, including Hamlet 4 times; a farcical romp through the Bard’s entire canon that must be seen to be believed.  The Inver Hills Theatre Department presents: The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) at 7:30pm in the Fine Arts Theater on February 27, 28 and March 6, 7.

Inver Hills Prohibits Discrimination, Harassment and Certain Consensual Relationships

Inver Hills embraces and is governed by the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities’ (MnSCU’s) 1B.1 Equal Opportunity and Nondiscrimination in Employment and Education policy. This policy prohibits discrimination in employment, and in access to and participation in programs, services and activities based on race, sex, color, creed, religion, age, national origin, disability, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. The policy prohibits harassment—between faculty/staff and student, and between any employees—on any of these discriminatory bases. MnSCU’s policy also prohibits employment discrimination based on familial status, and membership or activity in a local human rights commission.

The policy has some additional provisions relating to consensual relationships. It forbids faculty and staff from entering into a consensual sexual or romantic relationship with a student or an employee over whom the faculty/staff exercises direct or otherwise significant academic, administrative, supervisory, evaluative, counseling or extracurricular authority or influence.

The policy prohibits initiating a consensual relationship with a student or another employee while the faculty or staff member is in a position to exercise such direct or otherwise significant authority or influence.

If a faculty or staff member has a current pre-existing consensual relationship with a student or employee, and is now in a position to exercise the described authority or influence over that individual, the faculty or staff member must immediately inform his/her supervisor, manager or Administrator, so that the college can determine whether that duty should be reassigned.

To make a complaint about an employee or supervisor engaging in discrimination, discriminatory harassment, or in a consensual relationship where an evaluative role exists–please contact Liz Newberry, Human Resources Director at (651) 450-3654, enewber@inverhills.edu, or Room 233 Liberal Arts Building.

To make a complaint about a student engaging in discrimination or discriminatory harassment, please contact Gina Sevick, Academic Advisor at (651) 450-3515, gsevick@inverhills.edu, or Room 252 College Center.
