Sexual Harassment for Faculty/Staff
Bethune-Cookman University (B-CU) prohibits discrimination based on sex in employment and education programs and activities both on and off campus. This policy applies to all students and employees; to conduct on school grounds, off-campus, and at school-sponsored activities; and, through technology resources provided by or used at BCU. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and other laws, 1 prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in employment and education programs and activities. Title IX protects all persons from sex discrimination, which includes sexual harassment and sexual violence. B-CU will process all sex discrimination complaints it receives, including complaints of sexual harassment and sexual violence, regardless of where the conduct occurred, to determine whether the conduct occurred in the context of an employment or education program or activity, or had continuing effects on campus. If alleged off-campus sexual harassment or sexual violence occurred in the context of an education program or activity or had continuing effects on campus, the complaint will be treated the same as a complaint involving campus conduct. This includes complaints of sexual assault or harassment by students, employees, and third parties.
