Zero Tolerance graphic

By the Board of Regents Policy, Title 4, Chapter 8, Section 13, the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) is committed to providing a place of work and learning free of discrimination on the basis of a person's age, disability, whether actual or perceived by others (including service connected disabilities), gender (including pregnancy related condition), military status or military obligations, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, genetic information, national origin, race, or religion.

Where discrimination is found to have occurred, the NSHE will act to stop the discrimination, to prevent its recurrence, to remedy its effects, and to discipline those responsible in accordance with the NSHE Code or, in the case of classified employees, the Nevada Administrative Code. Sexual Harassment is Illegal under Federal and State Law. Sexual harassment including sexual violence is a form of discrimination; it is illegal.

No employee or student, either in the workplace or in the academic environment, should be subject to unwelcome verbal or physical conduct that is sexual in nature. Sexual harassment does not refer to occasional compliments of a socially acceptable nature, it refers to behavior of a sexual nature that is not welcome, that is personally offensive, and that interferes with performance. It is expected that students, faculty, and staff will treat one another with respect.

How to Reduce the Risk of Sexual Assault
(reproduced from the RAINN web site at http://www.rainn.org)

  1. When you go to a party, go with a group of friends.
  2. Arrive together, watch out for each other, and leave together.
  3. Don't leave your beverage unattended or accept a drink from an open container.
  4. Don't allow yourself to be isolated with someone you don't know or trust.
  5. Be aware of your surroundings at all times. Trust your instincts.
  6. Think about the level of intimacy you want in a relationship, and clearly state your limits.

What Should You Do if You Are Sexually Assaulted?

  • Get to a safe place
  • Get medical attention immediately
  • Do not change your clothes
  • Do not bathe or douche
  • Do not brush your teeth or use mouthwash
  • Do not eat or drink anything
  • Do not apply medication
  • Do not clean up the crime scene
  • Report the incident to the Police

Safety in Numbers and Escorts

When studying late or leaving evening classes it is a good idea to walk with friends and classmates. There is always more safety in groups than a single person walking at night alone. If you feel uncomfortable and would like an escort to your vehicle or dorm room please feel free to contact your faculty member, the Campus Director or, in Elko, the Security Department.

Concerns

If you are have concerns about a single person please contact the Campus Director, Safety & Security Director or Vice President of Student Services to discuss the situation. (Click here for contact information)

Sexual Assault Policy

Great Basin College has a zero tolerance policy for any type of assault including sexual assault.

Anyone who believes they may be a victim of assault should contact the Police Department by calling 911 first. They should then contact Security or the Campus Director to respond to their location on campus. The Director of Safety & Security and the Vice President of Student Services must be notified either by notification of Security by the Campus Director or directly by the victim.
