138.0 VI-1.20 - UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND SYSTEM POLICY ON SEXUAL HARASSMENT
 
 
  (Approved by the Board of Regents, June 5, 1992)
 
 
  The University of Maryland System is committed to creating and
  maintaining an environment in which every individual can work and
  learn without being harassed.  All members of the academic
  community should support the principle that sexual harassment
  represents a failure in ethical behavior and that sexual
  exploitation of professional relationships will not be condoned.
  Sexual harassment is inconsistent with commitment to the goals of
  quality, access and choice that characterize the activities of
  the System and its constituent institutions.  Sexual harassment
  is a form of discrimination prohibited by federal and state law.
 
  Each institution of the University of Maryland System shall have
  procedures for implementation of the policy prohibiting sexual
  harassment, consistent with federal and state laws and policies.
 
  Those procedures shall ensure that the community is educated
  about the problem and sanctions which can be imposed and is well
  informed concerning resources available to complainants, and
  informal and formal means of complaint resolution.
 
  Procedures shall be designed to give due consideration to
  confidentiality, prevent retaliation, and achieve prompt and
  equitable resolution of complaints while protecting the rights of
  the person bringing the complaint and of the person accused of
  harassment.
