Enough is Enough Policy

Relevant excerpt

Sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome action, language or visual representation of a sexual nature that has the effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work or academic performance or that creates a hostile working, educational, or living environment.

A second form of sexual harassment (hostile work environment) exists when an individual is subjected to unwelcome discriminatory conduct because of their sex or gender that is either severe or pervasive, alters the work or educational conditions of the individual, and creates an abusive environment.

Examples of conduct that may constitute sexual harassment include:

Verbal conduct:

  • making or using derogatory comments, epithets, slurs or humor, including those of transphobic or homophobic nature, frequent use of an individual’s “deadname” or pronouns by which the individual does NOT identify, not pedagogically appropriate
  • verbal abuse of a sexual nature, graphic verbal commentaries about an individual’s body, sexually degrading words used to describe an individual, suggestive or obscene letters, notes or invitations, not pedagogically appropriate
  • objectively offensive comments of a sexual nature, including persistent or pervasive sexually explicit statements, questions, jokes, or anecdotes, which a reasonable peer would find offensive and which are not pedagogically appropriate
