It is the policy of Clark Atlanta University that sexual harassment and discrimination on the basis of gender will not be condoned. As a matter of practice and policy, the University is committed to maintaining an educational and working environment free of conduct which degrades or subjugates employees or students. This policy applies equally to faculty, administrative and support staff and students, and is in keeping with the spirit and intent of Federal guidelines (Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964) on discrimination because of gender.
It is the policy of Clark Atlanta University to provide each student, faculty member and staff member with an environment free from harassment.
Sexual harassment is any unwelcomed sexual advance, request for sexual favors, or verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that interferes with performance by creating a hostile, offensive, or intimidating work environment or is an expressed or implied condition of employment. Such behavior will be subject to disciplinary actions up to and including dismissal.
- Any complaints relating to this type of misconduct should be reported to the Director of Human Resources immediately. Complaints will be treated confidentially and promptly, and will be carefully investigated.
- It is a violation of University policy for any member of the University community to retaliate against an individual who brings forth a complaint of sexual harassment.
