All hostile, threatening, or intimidating behavior that by its very nature would be interpreted by a reasonable person to threaten or endanger the health, safety or well being of any person is contradictory to the University’s mission and therefore not acceptable. Examples of such behavior may include, but are not limited to:
- Harassment. The University defines harassment as conduct that is so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive that it so undermines and detracts from a student’s educational experience or creates a hostile environment and essentially denies a student equal access to the University’s resources and opportunities. Conduct over social media that rises to this level is prohibited. Harassment, as defined above, is not protected by the First Amendment.
- Any form of harassment, including, stalking, sexual harassment or harassment based on perceived or actual identities.
