Sexual Harassment

Discrimination Complaint Form for Students

One of the functions of the Student Services Office at each college or center is to investigate complaints by students of discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, citizenship status (including document abuse), sex (including sexual harassment and pregnancy), sexual orientation, gender identity, age (over 40), physical or mental disability, veteran status, or genetic information. The formal investigatory process is begun by completing and signing the Discrimination Complaint Form. Formal complaints must be filed within 180 days of the most recent alleged act of discrimination. Files and documentation relative to the investigation will be maintained in the Legal Services Department.

If you have questions about the investigation procedure or any other concerns with regard to filing a complaint, please call 480-731-8880.

To prove unlawful or District-prohibited discrimination, it is necessary to show that under similar circumstances, you have been treated differently (less favorably) than other individuals of a different race, color, religion, national origin, citizenship status (including document abuse), sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, physical or mental disability, veteran status, or genetic information; or, that you have been retaliated against for either filing a discrimination complaint or participating in a discrimination-complaint investigation. If you are a student and feel you have been treated unfairly but the unfair treatment is not based on your race, color, religion, national origin, citizenship status (including document abuse), sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, physical or mental disability, veteran status, or genetic information, submitting a formal complaint on this form is likely not the appropriate or most effective means of addressing such unfair treatment. Contact the Office of Student Affairs or Vice President of Academic Affairs at your college or center for possible resolution.
