AACC defines sexual harassment as “unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature,” according to Karen Cook, dean of the School of Business and Law and AACC’s federal compliance officer.

That includes “unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other verbal, nonverbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature,” according to the college’s sexual harassment policy.

Examples include: unwelcome physical contact, threats, unwelcome sexual jokes, and unwelcome talk about one’s gender identity, gender or orientation.

AACC’s sexual harassment rules are based on Title IX, a federal civil rights law that protects students from sex discrimination, sexual harassment and sexual assault.
