Covered conduct

Conduct that is covered by Title IX and associated laws includes all kinds of sexual harassment from spoken words or pictures to violent actions and everything in between, whether they occur on campus or off. The University's consideration of these matters occurs without regard to, belief of, perception of, or actual sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression.

Many of these behaviors are clearly defined in the Code of Student Conduct (see pages 6-8) and include:
Sexual harassment
Sexual assault
Sexual violence
Dating violence
Domestic violence

Understanding Affirmative Consent is critical to understanding what is prohibited.  HERE is the quick version.  The full version is found on pages 6 and 7 of the Code

Additionally – covered conduct may encompass more than these clear definitions. Any conduct, regardless of above factors, which "is sufficiently serious to deny or limit a student's ability to participate in or benefit from the school's program based on sex" can be covered by Title IX (Office of Civil Rights, Revised Sexual Harassment Guidance 1/25/01.) Binghamton University encourages anyone who believes they have experienced, witnessed or heard about an event, now or in the past, that might be covered under Title IX to report the matter [simple reporting options.] In doing so we are all able to help provide a discriminatory-free environment for everyone in our community and prevent future offenses.
