Protection Against Sexual Harassment
Excerpt from Student Handbook:
Students have the right of protection from sexual harassment. Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitutes sexual harassment when:
- Submission to such conduct is made explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual’s academic standing or employment; or
- Submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as a basis for academic decisions or employment; or
- Such conduct unreasonably interferes with an individual’s academic performance or work or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive environment.
Any student who feels he/she has been sexually harassed should contact his/her faculty advisor or a faculty member of his/her choosing for further details on the Darton Sexual Harassment Policy and for assistance in the procedures for filing non-academic grievances (beginning with Level II).
