Relevant excerpt

Sexual harassment can occur between individuals of different sexes or of the same sex. Sexual harassment may occur in the form of sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other conduct of a sexual nature. Sexual harassment is unwelcomed 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 or academic admission or advancement, or participation in University programs or activities; (2) submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for employment or academic decisions affecting such individual; or (3) such conduct is sufficiently severe or pervasive to unreasonably interfere with an individual’s work or academic performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working or academic environment. A single, unusually severe incident may constitute sexual harassment.
