Bullying, Harassment, and Intimidation Prevention
Bullying, harassment, and intimidation have no place at CMIT. Whether it happens in the hallways, in the cafeteria, or online, such behavior can create hostile learning environments that interfere with students’ ability to strive academically, emotionally, and physically. Bullying is unwanted behavior that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated over time with the intent to cause harm. Bullying behavior may include: making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physical or verbally, and deliberately excluding someone from a group.
If you would like to report instances of bullying, harassment, or intimidation, please complete the Bullying, Harassment, or Intimidation Reporting form available electronically here or in hard copy in your Counselor’s office. Keep one copy and give the other to your counselor or an administrator so they can start an investigation. Meetings will be held with each involved party to discuss findings and develop a plan of support.
