It is a violation of University policy for any University employee or student to subject any person to harassment on University property or at a University-sponsored activity.
Actions constitute harassment, if they substantially interfere with another's educational or employment opportunities, peaceful enjoyment of residence, physical security, and they are taken with a general intent to engage in the actions and with the knowledge that the actions are likely to substantially interfere with a protected interest identified in the subsection above. Such intent and knowledge may be inferred from all the circumstances.
Relationship to CCI
If harassment is discriminatory, it falls within the education, information gathering, and referral functions of the CCI. Harassment is discriminatory if taken with the purpose or effect of differentiating on the basis of another person's race, sex, gender identity, color, national origin, religion, age, sexual orientation, disability, other protected veteran status, special disabled veteran status, or Vietnam-era veteran status.
