Sexual Misconduct: Unwanted Sexual Behavior
Sexual Harassment Introduction
La Salle University is committed to fostering an academic situation and work environment that is free of all forms of discrimination. Sexual harassment is an illegal form of discrimination under Title VII of The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972. Sexual harassment refers to any type of unwanted behavior directed toward a student or employee based on his or her gender. These laws are concerned with the IMPACT of the behavior, not the INTENT.
Sexual harassment is a serious offense, and is prohibited conduct that will not be tolerated, whether it be in a faculty/student, faculty/faculty, supervisor/employee, staff/student, student/student, or other relationship.
La Salle University firmly believes in providing an academic environment and work place that is respectful of all of its members and, thus, free from all forms of sexual harassment. All members of the community are responsible for ensuring such an environment exists.

"So often, we believe that we have come to a place that is void of hope and void of possibilities, only to find that it is the very hopelessness that allows us to hit bottom, give up our illusion of control, turn it over, and ask for help. Out of the ashes of our hopelessness comes the fire of our hope."
