2.29 Sexual Harassment

A student shall be free of sexual harassment by University faculty, staff, supervisors and employees. Sexual harassment–a form of sex discrimination–includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical actions of a sexual nature when submission to such conduct is made explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of the student’s status in a course, program, or activity; or is used as a basis for academic or other decisions affecting such student; or when such conduct has the purpose or effect of substantially interfering with the student’s academic performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive academic environment.
