What is Sexual Harassment?

Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex includes Sexual Harassment which is defined as conduct on the basis of sex that satisfies one or more of the following:

  • Quid pro quo: An employee of the university conditioning the provision of an aid, benefit, or service of the institution on an individual’s participation in unwelcome sexual conduct.
  • Unwelcome conduct determined by a reasonable person to be so severe, pervasive and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a person equal access to the school’s education program or activity.
  • Sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking as defined in other federal laws (Clery Act and VAWA).
