Harassment and Cyber-harassment

Harassment and cyber-harassment are contrary to the best interest of the College and thereby prohibited by the rules of the District Board of Trustees of Florida State College at Jacksonville.

As used herein, harassment and cyber-harassment incorporates the following:

Harassment is defined in Board Rules as “conduct that is unwelcome and unreasonably interferes with an employee’s status or a student’s performance by creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working or academic environment. It includes offensive or demeaning language or treatment of an individual, where such language or treatment is based on prejudicial stereotypes of the group to which an individual may belong. It includes, but is not limited to, objectionable epithets, threatened or actual physical harm or abuse, or other intimidating or insulting conduct directed against the individual.” (Rule 6Hx7-2.26) Harassment is any written, visual, or verbal communication, physical act, gesture, or omission with the actual or implied intent of:

  • Physical, emotional, or mental harm
  • Damaging, extorting, or taking personal property
  • Substantially interfering with the educational experience
  • Creating an intimidating or threatening educational or work environment
  • Subjecting others to multiple instances of disrespectful or inflammatory communication
  • Subjecting others to unwanted or illegal pornographic or vulgar material

Cyber-Harassment is defined as harassment perpetrated through technologies such as, but not limited to, email, instant messages, text messages, photo messages, discussion boards, digital images, digital video, digital audio, internet sites, blogs or social networking sites.

Any student alleged to have committed any act of harassment or cyber-harassment as defined herein shall be entitled to due process as defined in District Board of Trustees’ Rule 6Hx7-2.18 prior to the administration of disciplinary action including suspension and dismissal.

Disciplinary procedures for violation of the harassment and cyber-harassment policy shall be the same as those published for other violations of the student code of conduct as delineated in Administrative Procedures Manual 11-0601.
