Sexual Harassment Policy

Relevant excerpt

1.8 Sexual harassment includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when the following is present: … Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work or academic performance or creating an intimidating or hostile working or learning environment.

1.9 A hostile environment in sexual harassment may include, but is not limited to, the deliberate, repeated making of unsolicited gestures or comments of a sexual nature; the deliberate, repeated display of offensive sexually graphic materials not deemed necessary for business purposes; or deliberate verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature, that is sufficiently severe to interfere with a reasonable employee’s work performance, to interfere with a student’s ability to participate in or benefit from a University program or activity, or to create an abusive working or academic environment. A single, severe event is enough to potentially constitute sexual harassment.
