M1.01System Regulation - Civil Rights Compliance is an administrative process to address complaints of discrimination based on sex, to protect victims, and to prevent reoccurrence.Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal, nonverbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when this conduct is so severe, persistent or pervasive that it explicitly or implicitly affects an individual’s employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual’s work or educational performance, or creates an intimidating or hostile work or educational environment.
Inquiries or complaints about discrimination may also be directed to the United States Equal Opportunity Commission ( 800-669-4000) or the United States Department of Education Office of Civil Rights (214-661-9600).
