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 Educationpolicy. 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 also prohibits harassment—between faculty/staff and student, and between any employees—on any of these discriminatory bases.

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 Jessica Stumpf, Vice President of Student Affairs at (651) 450-3692, jstumpf@inverhills.edu, or Room 232 College Center.

Inver Hills Community College and Metropolitan State University students are partnering for a community event designed to provide healthy foods for community residents in the Dayton’s Bluff area. Our goal is to prepare over 50-100 fresh apple piesand we need your help in harvesting apples and making the pies.

Sunrise River Farm has agreed to donate the apples used for the pies (www.sunriseriverfarm.com). Our apple picking date will be Saturday, September 20, 2014 at 1:00 pm. Once the apples have been picked we will wash, peel and prepare them for the pies on two (2) dates:

Thursday, September 25, 2014 and Thursday, October 2, 2014 both at 11:00 a.m. at the First Lutheran Church in Saint Paul (http://lovegrowshere.net/). Volunteers please meet in the community kitchen located in the community center. Once pies are baked they will be distributed to community members during their community dinner (6:00 pm). Needed items for the pie baking event include pie tins, rolling pins, pastry sheets, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, flour, milk, and butter (Please let me know if you will be bringing these items – you can bring these items with you to the kitchen).

We Need Your Help! Please contact Barb Curchack (BCurcha@inverhills.mnscu.edu) or August Hoffman (august.hoffman@metrostate.edu) to let us know if you intend to help out on either date.

Thank you for your help!
