Student Handbook: Code of Student Conduct- Harassment

Relevant excerpt

The term “harassment” means conduct that, in the aggregate, is sufficiently pervasive, persistent, or severe that a reasonable person with the same characteristics of the victim of the harassing conduct would be adversely affected to a degree that interferes with his or her ability to participate in or to realize the intended benefits of an institutional activity, employment or resource. It may consist of written, electronic, verbal, and/ or physical acts. It is also defined as using abusive language, including electronic communication, tending to incite an immediate breach of the peace to any person, persistent following or stalking of a person, or engaging in a course of conduct or repeatedly committing acts that cause mental or physical harm to another person.
