Sexual Harassment Policy
It is the policy of The City University of New York and Hunter College to prohibit sexual harassment of employees and students. It is a violation of policy for any member of the college community to take action against any individual for reporting sexual harassment.
Hunter College has a sexual harassment panel, appointed by the President, which consists of faculty, staff, and students. The panel is charged with ensuring that the college community is familiar with the sexual harassment policies of Hunter College and the City University. Other responsibilities include investigating reports of sexual harassment and forwarding findings and recommendations to the college President. A member of the faculty, staff, or a student should report sexual harassment occurrences to a member of the Sexual Harassment Panel or to the Dean of Students, and, if required, to the local city police precinct. Reporting information can also be found in college catalogs and schedule of classes.
Employees covered by collective bargaining agreements, should also contact their union representative to file a formal grievance if they are being sexually harassed by a member of their department. Confidential counseling is available through the Office of the Dean of Students and through the Employee Assistance Program.
The entire Hunter College Sexual Harassment Policy can be found on the Human Resources website.
