Sexual Assault Prevention & Awareness

Definition from SVSU's Anti-Harassment/Discrimination Policy

The law defines "sexual harassment" as unwelcome sexual advances, request for sexual favors, or verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when (a) submission to or rejection of such advances, requests, or conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of employment, education, housing or participation in any University activity; or (b) such advances, requests or conduct have the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual's employment, education, housing or participation in any University activity by creating an intimidating, hostile, humiliating or sexually offensive environment.  It is the University’s policy to vigorously enforce these prohibitions.
