Sexual Harassment is unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that is severe or pervasive, and that creates a hostile or abusive learning, working, or living environment, thereby unreasonably interfering with a person's ability to learn or work, or to access or participate in a College program or activity, and the conduct has no legitimate relationship to the subject matter of an academic course or research. Conduct is unwelcome when the person being harassed does not solicit or invite the behavior and regards it as offensive. The fact that a person may accept the conduct does not mean that s/he welcomes it. Sexual harassment can include behavior as part of a hazing incident.
Sexual Harassment also includes behavior not sexual in nature but behavior directed toward a person because of the person's sex and/or gender, including harassment based on the person's nonconformity with gender norms and stereotypes.
