Sexual harassment is unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that: (a) creates Hostile Environment, as defined in this Policy; or (b) constitutes Quid Pro Quo Harassment, as defined in this Policy. Sexual Harassment is sexual misconduct prohibited by the University.
1. Hostile Environment: A hostile environment exists, for purposes of this Policy, when unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature is sufficiently serious, persistent, or pervasive such that it limits or denies an individual’s employment, academic performance, or ability to participate in or benefit from University programs or activities. Conduct must be deemed serious, persistent, or pervasive from both a subjective and an objective perspective.
