Sexual Harassment

Sexual Harassment

What is sexual harassment?

  • Sexual harassment is unwanted behaviour of a sexual nature and can involve online and verbal comments, gestures or physical touching/assault. It can violate your dignity, make you feel intimidated, degraded or humiliated and creates a hostile or offensive environment.
  • Sexual harassment is not acceptable behaviour. Reporting it, whether anonymously or not, can help to alter this behaviour and make the university safer for all.
  • Incidents can still be considered sexual harassment even if the alleged harasser didn't intend this.
  • Sexual harassment doesn't have to be intentionally directed at a specific person, it can be a one-off incident or ongoing.
