Preventing and Addressing Sex Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, and Sexual Violence
Claremont McKenna College strives to maintain an environment for students, faculty, and staff that is free of sex discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual violence. All members of the College community should be aware that the College is prepared to take prompt remedial action to prevent and address such behavior and remedy its effects.
