Sexual Harassment

The University of North Carolina at Charlotte is committed to providing an environment for all employees and students which is fair, humane, and respectful that supports and rewards employee and student performance on the basis of relevant considerations such as ability and effort. Conduct that inappropriately calls attention to sexuality, especially when it asserts that sexuality is relevant to employee or student performance, is damaging to that environment.

Sexual Harassment Policy and Grievance Procedures

Title IX

Sexual harassment of students is a form of prohibited sex discrimination. Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal, nonverbal, or physical conduct of a sexual nature by a University employee, by another student, or by a third party, constitutes sexual harassment if such conduct is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive to limit the student's ability to participate in or benefit from an education program or activity, or create a hostile or abusive educational environment.

Go to our Title IX at UNC Charlotte website for more information on sexual harassment as defined by Title IX.
