Category: Harassment Policies School: Millersville University of Pennsylvania Statement Rating: Green Last updated: April 30, 2018

Relevant excerpt

Sexual harassment consists of interaction between individuals that is characterized by unwelcome sexual advances, coercion, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when: (1) submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual’s employment, living conditions and/or educational evaluation; (2) submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for tangible employment or educational decisions affecting such individual; or (3) such conduct has the effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work or academic performance or creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive working or educational environment.

Unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that is sufficiently severe, persistent, and pervasive, which results substantially limiting or interfering with an individual’s work, educational performance, participation in extra-curricular activities, or equal access to the University’s educational resources and opportunities will subject an individual to appropriate disciplinary action by the University.
