Adjunct Faculty Handbook – Equity, Diversity, and Harassment

Relevant excerpt

For purposes of this policy, sexual harassment includes unwelcome sexual advances; verbal or physical conduct with unwanted sexual implications such as sexual kidding; remarks about one's anatomy; patting or touching; displaying sexually suggestive visual material; or requests for sexual favors. A finding of sexual harassment does not depend on finding that the complainant has been harmed in terms of loss of advancement, position, status, or grades. A finding that one has created a continuing offensive verbal, visual, or behavioral environment is adequate justification for a finding of sexual harassment.
