Sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination, and is not allowed at Niagara University. Sexual harassment consists of behavior, based on gender, that excludes or makes someone so uncomfortable that they no longer have equal access their education.
Sexual harassment could be in the form of bullying, jokes, intimidation and exclusion made on the basis of gender, or it can consist of “quid pro quo” bargaining of dates and sexual favors for grades.
If you are the target of or witness to sexual harassment on campus or in connection with Niagara University programs, report it to the dean of students, the title IX officer, or the director of human resources. The university’s full policy on sexual harassment may be found on MyNU under “Policy” or at http://mynu.niagara.edu/mynu2/policy/documentsHARASSMENT.pdf.
