Anoka-Ramsey Community College is committed to a policy of nondiscrimination in employment and education opportunity. No person shall be discriminated against in the terms and condition of employment, personnel practices, or access and participation in, programs, services, and activities with regard to race, sex, color, creed, religion, age, national origin, disability, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, sexual orientation, or membership or activity in a local commission as defined by law.

Harassment of an individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, creed, religion, age, national origin, disability, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, sexual orientation, or membership or activity in a local commission has no place in a learning or work environment and is prohibited. Sexual violence has no place in a learning or work environment. Further, Anoka-Ramsey Community College shall work to eliminate violence in all its forms. Physical contact by designated system, college, and university staff members may be appropriate if necessary to avoid physical harm to persons or property.

Lack of English skills will not be a barrier to admission or participation. In order to eliminate barriers we take appropriate measures to assess each student’s ability to participate and benefit through placement testing and counseling. Based on assessment and counseling, students are then provided with campus services or a referral to community services to be better prepared for successful participation.

To make a report of discrimination/harassment or sexual violence/sexual assault, please contact any of the following designated college officials.
