It is the policy of Chicago State University that the sexual harassment of one member of the academic community by another will not be tolerated. This policy applies to all members of the campus community: students, employees, and visitors.

...

Sexual harassment has been defined as:

"unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when ... such conduct has the purpose or effect of substantially interfering with an individual's work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment."

...

The second category, "hostile environment," refers to patterns of behavior or incidents (including verbal, non verbal, physical, or other) which may seem harmless as individual events, but which may be considered intimidating, hostile, or offensive when taken together.
