Sexual Harassment Policy

Sexual Harassment (Policy) Sexual harassment is a form of illegal discrimination and is prohibited by the University of Cincinnati. It is the policy of the University of Cincinnati that no member of the university community may sexually harass another.

Anyone who violates this policy will be subject to disciplinary action which may include suspension or termination. Harassment refers to behavior which is not welcome, which is personally offensive, which debilitates morale and which interferes with the work or academic effectiveness of its victims. Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute harassment when: submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual’s employment or academic success; or submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for employment or academic decisions affecting such individual; or such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work or academic performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working or study environment.

If you have a concern about sexual harassment, are seeking assistance, information, or wish to file a complaint, contact one of these offices on UC’s Clifton campus: Equal Opportunity Office, University Ombuds, Women’s Programs & Services, Student Affairs and Human Resources, or Psychological Services Center. You can also seek assistance in the Dean’s Office at UC Blue Ash from Dr. Greg Metz, Assistant Dean of Students.
