Sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other conduct of a sexual nature when:
• Such conduct is abusive and implies, in an abusive manner, a
discriminatory hostility toward the personal or professional interests of the affected individual because of his/her sex.
Also, unwelcome sexual conduct by a member of the college community is harassment if one has to submit to it as a part of one’s work or program and reasonable people agree it is offensive and intimidating, or if it creates an environment which adversely affects one’s academic or job performance. Sexual harassment is understood to include a wide range of behaviors, from the actual coercing of sexual relations to the unwelcome emphasizing of sexual identity.
