College Handbook: Student Code of Conduct- Sexual Harassment

Relevant excerpt

Sexual Harassment: Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct. Sexual harassment is a form of discrimination, and can take two forms: quid pro quo and hostile environment.

Hostile environment harassment occurs when unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature is sufficiently serious that it affects a student’s ability to participate in or benefit from an education program or activity, or creates an intimidating, threatening or abusive educational environment. A hostile environment can be created by a school employee, another student, or even someone visiting the school, such as a student or employee from another school.
