Relevant excerpt

Sexual Harassment – unwelcome verbal, non-verbal or physical conduct, including sexual violence, when:

1. Submission to such conduct is made a term or condition of employment, education, or participation in a University activity, or
2. Submission to or rejection of such conduct is a factor in a decision affecting employment, education, or participation in a University activity.

Another form of sexual harassment is unwelcome verbal, non-verbal or physical conduct based on sex or gender that is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it unreasonably interferes with a student’s academic (or work) performance or living conditions, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment. This form of harassment may include acts of intimidation, aggression or hostility based on sex or sex-stereotyping, even if the acts do not involve conduct of a sexual nature.
