Regents' Policy Manual - Section 2.5: Sexual Harassment

Adopted Date: 09-12-1996


This policy applies to all members of the University community.


The University is committed to creating and maintaining a community in which students, faculty, and administrative and academic staff can learn and work together in an atmosphere that enhances productivity and draws on the diversity of its members -- an atmosphere free from all forms of disrespectful conduct, harassment, exploitation or intimidation, including sexual. Sexual harassment subverts the mission of the University and threatens the careers of students, faculty and staff. It is a violation of federal law and will not be tolerated. The University makes special efforts to eliminate both overt and subtle forms of sexual harassment. In fulfilling its dual roles of educating and providing public service, the University can and must demonstrate leadership in educating all members of its community to what is appropriate behavior between the genders.


The President shall adopt administrative policies and procedures for implementing this policy and for resolving complaints of sexual harassment. Retaliation against any individual for bringing a complaint or participating in an investigation or hearing is strictly forbidden.
