It is the policy of Central Oregon Community College that no member of the college community may sexually harass another. Pursuant to Title IX guidance provided the Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights, sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature. It includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal, nonverbal, or physical conduct of a sexual nature and may come in the form of a hostile environment, quid pro quo, retaliation, or violence. Sexual harassment may happen between individuals of the same or different genders and may be based on gender stereotypes, sexual orientation and gender identity.
