Sexual Harassment Policy


Drexel University is committed to providing a working and learning environment free from sexual harassment and it is the policy of the University that sexual harassment in any form is unacceptable behavior and will not be tolerated.

Management and supervisory personnel, at all levels, are responsible for taking reasonable and necessary action to prevent sexual harassment. All members of the University community, faculty, staff and students, are required to promptly report any and all conduct which might be in violation of this policy.

The University will:

  • respond to all complaints of sexual harassment pursuant to the published Discrimination and Harassment Complaint Resolution Procedure;
  • take action to provide remedies when sexual harassment is discovered;
  • impose appropriate sanctions upon individuals who have been found to be in violation of the University's policy; and
  • protect the privacy of those involved in sexual harassment complaints, to the extent possible.

The above actions will apply to the extent permitted by law.

ELIGIBILITY

This policy applies equally to male and female faculty, staff and students, to all other persons on the premises subject to University control and to those engaged to further the interests of the University.

NON-RETALIATION

Retaliation against an individual who, in good faith, reports, complains about or participates in an investigation of an allegation of discrimination/harassment is prohibited by Drexel University policy and by federal law.
