Harassment is a form of discrimination that violates federal and state laws and Clarkson Policy. 

Harassment is unwelcome conduct that is based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy)gender identity, gender expression, national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. Harassment becomes unlawful where

1) [Quid Pro Quo] enduring the offensive conduct becomes a condition of continued employment/membership/participation, or

2) [Hostile Environment] the conduct is severe or pervasive enough to create an environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive.

3) [Retaliation] Anti-discrimination laws also prohibit harassment against individuals in retaliation for filing a discrimination charge, testifying, or participating in any way in an investigation, proceeding, or lawsuit under these laws; or opposing employment practices that they reasonably believe discriminate against individuals, in violation of these laws. 

(If you have experienced behavior that is physically threatening, humiliating, had an impact on your mental/emotional state, or is behavior that happens repeatedly, or is directed at one individual, it should be reported.)
