CSU Policy 6-0160-001: Discrimination, Harassment, Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Stalking and Retaliation Policy

Relevant excerpt

Harassment is a form of discrimination and is conduct based upon an individual’s race, age, creed, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, sex, gender, disability, veteran status, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or pregnancy that is unwelcome and sufficiently severe or pervasive enough to create a work environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or offensive, or that substantially interferes with an individual’s work or education. Intent is irrelevant in the determination of prohibited harassment. Depending upon the facts, harassment could include, but is not limited to threats, physical contact or violence, pranks, jokes, bullying, epithets, derogatory comments, or vandalism.

Sexual Harassment* is any unwelcome sexual advance, request for sexual favors, or other conduct of a sexual nature when: … Such conduct is sufficiently severe or pervasive to unreasonably interfere with an individual’s employment or academic performance or create an intimidating, hostile or offensive environment for that person’s employment, education or participation in a university activity.
