Affirmative Action and Title IX Section 504


Bristol will continue to provide all employees, students and third parties with prompt, fair and impartial investigations of all complaints and allegations of harassment and discrimination. Complaints should be submitted online HERE.

The college is following the guidance of public health leaders to reduce in-person interactions due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Therefore, to facilitate moving forward with the investigation process in an efficient and safe manner, individuals submitting complaints will be asked to agree to proceed with interviews and meetings being conducted by Skype or telephone. Documents may be submitted electronically.

Investigations requiring in-person meetings will generally be postponed until further notice during this ever-changing time.


Bristol Community College’s policy is to provide equal opportunity in employment and in education for all qualified persons without discrimination because of disability status, race, color, gender, sexual orientation, age, or national origin.

In full and affirmative compliance with the laws of the United States and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and all applicable regulations thereto, this policy applies in all matters of the employment of professional and non-professional personnel, all other personnel practice, college admissions, educational programs and activities, as well as contracts for goods and services.

Title IX Confidential Employees

There are people on campus who you can talk to confidentially. These people have no responsibility to take action, report to law enforcement, or report to the Diversity & Title IX Officer the information you share with them, so long as the individual is acting in their role as a counselor or medical provider at the time you share your concerns with them. If you share your concerns with these people when they’re acting in their roles, Bristol will not conduct an investigation unless you inform campus authorities of your concerns, or the college learns about your situation from another person.
