Sexual Harassment

For all individuals who are part of the Temple community, sexually harassing conduct that is sufficiently severe, pervasive and objectively offensive as to substantially disrupt or undermine a person’s ability to participate in or to receive the benefits, services, or opportunities of the university is prohibited, including the following: unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other harassing conduct or physical contact of a sexual or gender-motivated nature, when:

  • submission to such conduct is made explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual’s employment or status in a course, program, or activity; or
  • submission to or rejection of such conduct is used as a basis for an employment-related, educational or other decision affecting an individual; or
  • such conduct substantially interferes with an individual’s work, educational performance, or equal access to the university’s resources and opportunities; or
  • such conduct creates an intimidating, hostile, or abusive work or educational environment.
