Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Assault Info
The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor does not unlawfully discriminate in admissions or any of its programs or activities on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, sex, age, or disability. The university reserves the right to take its religious convictions and principles into account in connection with its policies and decisions.
Harassment is verbal or physical conduct by any individual which creates an intimidating, offensive, or hostile environment. If harassment involves age, race, color, sex, gender, disability, national origin, or religion, it may be a form of illegal discrimination. Harassment is contrary to the Christian standards of conduct expected of all members of the university community. The university strictly prohibits harassment directed at any student, employee, or visitor to UMHB whether or not that conduct is illegal in the eyes of the law.
Sexual violence refers to a broad range of physical sexual acts perpetrated without a person’s consent, including where a person is incapable of giving consent due to an intellectual or other disability or to the victim’s use of drugs or alcohol. A number of different acts fall into the category of sexual violence, including rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, and sexual coercion. All such acts of sexual violence are forms of sexual harassment when they occur on campus or when students experience the continuing effects of off-campus sexual harassment in the educational setting.More Information
