Equal Opportunity & Affirmative Action: Title IX Notice of Non-Discrimination

Relevant excerpt

Sexual Harassment is unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that includes, but is not limited to:

  1. Sexual violence
  2. Sexual advances
  3. Requests for sexual favors
  4. Indecent exposure
  5. Verbal, nonverbal or physical unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature

These actions are considered sexual harassment when such conduct is sufficiently severe, persistent or pervasive that its effect, whether or not intended, is considered to be limiting the individual’s ability to participate in or benefit from the services, activities or opportunities offered by the university. Acts of verbal, non-verbal or physical aggression, intimidation or hostility if based on gender or gender-stereotyping may be considered sexual harassment, even if those acts do not involve conduct of a sexual nature.
