Sexual Harassment

By an amendment to the Civil Rights Act of November 1980 and subsequent state legislation, sexual harassment is expressly outlawed and is considered a violation of college policy. Conduct involving unwelcome sexual advances, requests, for sexual favors or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature shall be considered to constitute sexual harassment when:

  1. Submission to such conduct is made, either explicitly or implicitly, a term or condition of academic success.
  2. Submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for academic decisions affecting the student.
  3. Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with a student's performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment.

Prohibited is any behavior that represents repeated or unwanted sexual attention or sexual advances, when acceptance of such attention or advance is made a condition of reward or penalty. If an allegation is made, provisions in the Non-Academic Discrimination Grievance Resolve will be followed.
