Sexual harassment is defined as an inappropriate advance, sexual in nature, not welcomed by an individual. This form of harassment is listed under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, in addition to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Harassment of any kind is unacceptable and not tolerated at WKU. Men and women are both affected by sexual harassment; however, statistics show that females are more impacted, as "approximately 68 percent of female students who have experienced sexual harassment say they have felt somewhat or very upset about the incidents compared to 35 percent of male students."
