Wentworth Institute of Technology strongly affirms its commitment to maintaining a working and learning environment free of sexual harassment. Sexual harassment is a form of discrimination as defined by federal law. The University will not tolerate conduct on the part of any employee, associate, or student which has the effect of:
- substantially interfering with an individual’s work/academic performance
- creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive working/learning environment
- interfering with the educational process
- denying any student equal educational opportunity
The University will react promptly to complaints expressed to the vice president for Human Resources/Affirmative Action Officer, the dean of students (or designee), or Public Safety, who have established procedures for confidential investigation and review.
