Policy Prohibiting Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Violence, and Procedure for Reviewing Complaints 13-14

Category: Harassment Policies, Statement School: Kansas State University Statement Rating: Green

Relevant excerpt

Whether conduct is sufficient to constitute "sexual harassment" is evaluated under the totality of the circumstances, including the frequency of the conduct, its severity, whether it is physically threatening or humiliating, or merely an offensive utterance. These factors are evaluated from both subjective and objective viewpoints, considering not only effect that conduct actually had on the person, but also the impact it would likely have had on a reasonable person in the same situation. The conduct must subjectively and objectively meet this definition to be "sexual harassment" under this Policy.
