Safe Working and Learning Environment Policy: Discrimination

Relevant excerpt

Harassment is a specific form of discrimination. It is unwelcome behavior, based upon an individual’s actual or perceived protected status, where, in aggregate, the incidents are sufficiently pervasive or severe that a reasonable person with the same characteristics as the victim of the harassing conduct would be adversely affected to a degree that interferes to his or her ability to participate in or to realize the intended benefits of an institutional activity, employment or resource. Conduct over social media that rises to this level is prohibited. Harassment, as defined above, is not protected by the First Amendment.
