Racial Harassment Policy

I. Background

The Cobleskill campus community depends on trust and civility. A willingness to recognize the dignity and worth of each person at the college is essential to our mission.

It is the responsibility of each person on campus to respect the personal dignity of others. Cobleskill celebrates the growing diversity of its community. Students, faculty and staff come to Cobleskill from many different backgrounds. Learning to understand the differences among us as well as the similarities is an important dimension of education, one that continues for a lifetime. Tolerance alone, however, is not enough. Respect and understanding are also needed. We should celebrate our differences, and should seek to appreciate the richness and personal growth which our diversity provides to us as members of this community.
