Relevant excerpt

This policy applies to visitors, applicants for admission to or employment with the university, current students and employees who allege sexual harassment.

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 unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work or academic performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working or study environment.

Offensive conduct that does not rise to the level of harassment, however, may be grounds for discipline under other applicable policies.
