Harassment is a form of discrimination that includes unwelcome conduct based on protected characteristics. Such conduct could include offensive jokes, slurs, epithets or name calling, physical assaults or threats, intimidation, ridicule or mockery, insults or put-downs, offensive objects or pictures, and other conduct that interferes with a person’s ability to work or engage in educational programs or activities. Indiana University and Radio/TV Services prohibit staff from engaging in harassment.
Any member of the university community who feels that they have been subjected to discrimination, including harassment, in violation of the university’s Non-Discrimination/Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action policy, may file a report with the RTV HR officer, their supervisor, or with the IU Office of Institutional Equity.
