Equity and Diversity

At Folsom Lake College, we value equity and diversity. That's why we work toward just and fair inclusion into a society in which all people can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential.

In addition, retaliation against a person who files a complaint, refers a matter for investigation, participates in an investigation, or serves as an advocate for a complainant or respondent is prohibited by district policy.


How to File a Complaint

To file a complaint, fill out a Discrimination Complaint Form (PDF) and submit it to your equity officer. This form is not required and a complaint will not be rejected based on failure to use the form.

Complaint Resolution

If it is determined that misconduct occurred, then Folsom Lake College will take immediate steps to halt misconduct and remedy any effects of that misconduct.

An equity officer will hold an informal conference if the complainant wants to try and resolve the complaint informally. The equity officer will provide information about applicable laws and rules. If an informal resolution is not reached or if the complainant disagrees with the recommendation made, then the complainant may engage in a formal resolution process.
