Advice Regarding Sexual Harassment
Statement of Philosophy
Lock Haven University strives to recognize human dignity and therefore does not tolerate sexual harassment within or connected to this institution. Harassment is illegal and unfairly interferes with the opportunity for all persons, regardless of gender, to have a comfortable and productive work or education environment. The university is committed to taking all reasonable steps to prevent sexual harassment and to discipline those who do harass.
The university has adopted a policy regarding sexual harassment which is printed in the Student Handbook and in the second edition of the Eagle Eye. Please refer to that policy from time to time so that you will remain familiar with its contents. A copy of the policy may be obtained from the the contact persons designated below or from your supervisor or academic adviser.
Sexual harassment is any demeaning, humiliating, ridiculing, threatening, or intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment. Such conduct or situation has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with a person’s ability to perform his/her job or academic pursuits and is based on the sex or sexual orientation of that person.

harassed or you are receiving requests that you do not
desire, state "no" clearly. In the event

occurring, you re encouraged to communicate clearly,
preferably in writing, to the harasser and state that
the conduct is not acceptable.
Be aware that a relationship that
once was agreed to may become nonconsensual. If that
