What is Sex discrimination?

Conduct that is directed at an individual because that individual’s sex, and that subjects the individual to differential treatment so as to interfere with or limit the ability of the individual to participate in, or benefit from, the services, activities, or privileges provided by the University or otherwise adversely affects the individual’s employment or education.

Examples Can Include:

  • Being denied raises, benefits, promotions, or performance evaluations on the basis of the individual’s sex.
  • An individual is subjected to comments of a sexual nature by another employee and/or supervisor, and the University fails to take steps to stop the behavior.
  • Denying a student access to an educational program based on the student’s sex.
  • Engaging in or sanctioning continuing discriminatory conduct, unrelated to the academic discussion in a course or class, thus creating a hostile environment for individual students.
