Sexual Harassment on Campus. A Policy and Program of Deterrence.
American Council on Education, Washington, DC.
This booklet presents a revision of the American Council on Education policy statement regarding sexual harassment in light of legal developments that have occurred since the original publication of the statement in December 1986. Among the changes in the statement is the inclusion of a non-exhaustive list of conduct which has great potential to be deemed sexually harassing. The booklet provides a brief review of the legal landscape upon which it was drafted. The policy statement itself is followed by discussions concerning the importance of developing a campus program on sexual harassment, the key components of an effective program, what the definitions of sexual harassment are, grievance procedures required, and the guidelines for program development on college campuses. The booklet concludes with a list of 16 resource persons who are willing to consult with others on the development of policies, procedures, or programs dealing with sexual harassment; and a list of selected resource materials (25 citations).
