Relevant excerpt

For purposes of this policy, Sexual Misconduct also includes sexual harassment. Harassment is conduct that has the purpose or effect of substantially interfering with a person’s work or educational opportunity; creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work or educational environment; or otherwise negatively affects an employee’s or student’s work or educational opportunities.

Sexual harassment denies an individual dignity and respect and may take on different forms. It includes, but is not limited to: * Unwelcome verbal, written, or physical conduct that denigrates or shows hostility or aversion toward an individual because of that individual’s gender (or that of an individual’s relatives, friends, or associates); * Unwelcome threats, derogatory comments, jokes, innuendos, insults, slurs, epithets, negative stereotyping, and other similar conduct that relates to gender; or * The placement, dissemination, or circulation on campus of any unwelcome written or graphic material (in hard copy or electronic form) that denigrates or shows hostility or aversion toward an individual or group because of gender.
