Sexual Harassment and Related Unprofessional Conduct 13-14

Category: Harassment Policies School: Edinboro University of Pennsylvania Statement Rating: Yellow

Relevant excerpt

Sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, whether or not accompanied by promises or threats, and other sexual conduct that occur on or off campus when: … Such conduct is sufficiently severe or pervasive so as to have the effect of creating an intimidating or hostile work or educational environment, which unreasonably interferes with work or educational performance, or negatively affects an individual’s employment or education opportunities.

It is the University’s position that any degree of sexual harassment is a sufficient basis for the imposition of discipline on students and employees, and, depending on the nature of the offense, discipline could range from verbal warnings to termination or expulsion. When sexual harassment is sufficiently pervasive that it unreasonably interferes with an individual’s performance and creates an intimidating, hostile, and/or offensive working or learning environment, substantial disciplinary action is warranted.
