Title IX/Sexual Misconduct: Sexual Harassment

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.
