Board Policy 426: Title IX Sexual Harassment

Relevant excerpt

Sexual harassment may create a hostile, abusive, demeaning, offensive or intimidating environment. Unwelcome conduct of this nature that is determined by a reasonable person to be so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a person equal access to the University’s education program or activity is a violation of this policy and Federal Law.

Examples of sexual harassment may include, but are not limited to, the following:

non-sexual slurs about one’s gender; …
repeated unwanted discussions of sexual matters; use of sexual jokes, stories, analogies or images which are not related to the subject of the class or work situation; …
display or use of sexual graffiti or sexually-explicit pictures or objects; and sexually-suggestive jokes, comments, e-mails, or other written or oral communications.
