Discriminatory Harassment

means unwelcome conduct of a verbal, nonverbal, or physical nature that is sufficiently severe or pervasive to create a work or academic environment that a Reasonable Person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive on the basis of any Protected Class. A discriminatory harassing environment can be created by pervasive conduct or by a single severe episode. To be a violation of policy, harassment must be deemed severe, persistent, or pervasive from both a subjective and objective standard.
