Discrimination and Sexual Harassment

As an Equal Employment Opportunity employer, Baylor University complies with all applicable federal and state nondiscrimination laws and does not engage in unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, nationality or ethnic origin, sex, age, or disability in employment or the provision of services. Sexual harassment is discrimination based on one’s sex or gender. For discrimination to be considered unlawful, it must be all of the following: related to a protected category; unwelcome; offensive to a reasonable person in the recipient’s position; and severe or pervasive.

• If you witness, or are made aware of an incident regarding discrimination of any kind, immediately contact your supervisor, Human Resources or Office of General Counsel.

• If you feel you are being discriminated against, you may ask the person responsible to stop the behavior.

• If you are confronted by someone who feels you have discriminated against him or her, listen respectfully, apologize for the incident and stop the behavior.

• If you are not comfortable talking to the person responsible for the behavior, you may talk to a member of management or Human Resources.

• If you are a member of management receiving this information, you should listen to the concern and contact Human Resources.

Employees who feel they have been discriminated against or sexually harassed should follow the procedures outlined within Baylor’s Civil Rights policy.
