Harassing and intimidating Behavior refers to unwelcome or unreasonable behavior that harasses or intimidates people either as individuals or as a group and is sufficiently severe or pervasive. Harassing behavior is often persistent and part of a pattern, but it can also occur as a single incident. Harassment includes in-person verbal and non-verbal, written, and electronic conduct and behaviors. This behavior can be expressed or implied, creating and/or inciting a foreseeable hostile environment interfering with another person’s personal safety, safety of property, academic efforts, employment, or participation in the university community. This behavior may also include behavior that leads another to have a reasonable apprehension that such harm will occur.
