Relevant Excerpt

Dartmouth also defines Sexual Harassment to include (1) any unwelcome sexual advance, request for sexual favors, or other unwanted conduct of a sexual nature, whether verbal, non-verbal, graphic, physical, electronic, or otherwise (sexual harassment); and (2) unwelcome conduct, whether verbal, nonverbal, graphic, physical, or otherwise, based on sex or gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression, even if the acts do not involve conduct of a sexual nature (sex/gender-based harassment) when one or more of the following conditions are present:


The conduct is sufficiently severe, pervasive, and/or persist [sic] so as to unreasonably interfere with, limit, or alter the conditions of education, employment, or participation in a Dartmouth program or activity (i.e., Dartmouth's learning, working, or living programs), or by creating an environment that a reasonable person in similar circumstances would find intimidating, hostile, abusive, or offensive (hostile environment). Whether a hostile environment exists will be assessed under both an objective and subjective standard.
