There are also several community help line numbers: 24 hour crises clinic – (206) 461-3222, DCHS/Mental Health, Chemical Abuse and Dependency Services – (206) 263-9000, Teen Link – (206) 461-4922, drug and alcohol hotline – (206) 722-3700.
Harassment is unacceptable, discriminatory, and against the law. It is defined as unwelcome verbal or physical advances, or any other conduct or behavior in which the intent or effect is to create an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment. It will not be tolerated on campus or at any off-campus events. If a student feels they have been subjected to such behavior, they should report it to the college’s affirmative action officer who is the Executive Director of Human Resources. Students concerns will be promptly investigated. Students will not suffer retaliation from reporting such concerns. The college strictly forbids harassment based on other types of unlawful discrimination such as race or ethnicity, creed, color, national origin, citizenship, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, religion, disability, genetic information, or veteran status.

To this end, the College will enact and adopt Title IX Grievance Procedure for receiving and investigating Sexual Harassment allegations arising during education programs and activities. Any individual found responsible for violating Lake Washington Institute’s Title IX policy is subject to disciplinary action up to and including dismissal from the College educational programs and activities and/or termination of employment.
