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 Nella Austin in Human Resources at (651) 450-3672, or Room 217 Liberal Arts Building.

To make a complaint about a student engaging in discrimination or discriminatory harassment, please contact Gina Sevick, Director of Community & Work Based Learning at (651) 450-3295,, or Room 212 Library.

Inver Hills Theatre Auditions for Harvey

Inver Hills Theatre

Auditions For:


by Mary Chase

Directed by George M. Roesler

THE STORY: Elwood P. Dowd insists on including his friend Harvey in all of his sister Veta’s social gatherings. Trouble is, Harvey is an imaginary six-and-a-half-foot-tall rabbit. To avoid future embarrassment for her family—and especially for her daughter, Myrtle Mae—Veta decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium. At the sanitarium, a frantic Veta explains to the staff that her years of living with Elwood’s hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also, and so the doctors mistakenly commit her instead of her mild-mannered brother. The truth comes out, however; Veta is freed, and the search is on for Elwood, who eventually arrives at the sanitarium of his own volition, looking for Harvey. But it seems that Elwood and his invisible companion have had a strange influence on more than one of the doctors. Only at the end does Veta realize that maybe Harvey isn’t so bad after all.
