Student Handbook: Student Code of Conduct, Accountability and Responsibility- Gender-Based Harassment

Relevant excerpt

Gender-Based Harassment includes harassment based on a person’s actual or perceived gender, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or gender stereotypes which may include acts of aggression, intimidation, or hostility, whether verbal or non-verbal, graphic, physical, or otherwise, even if the acts do not involve conduct of a sexual nature, when the conditions outlined in (i) and/or (ii), below, are present. … Such conduct creates a hostile environment. A hostile environment exists when the conduct is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it unreasonably interferes with, limits, or deprives an individual from participating in or benefiting from the College’s educational or employment programs and/or activities. Conduct, which may include expression that rises to the level of harassment, must be deemed severe, persistent, or pervasive from both a subjective and an objective perspective.
