Sexual Harrassment

Stopping Sexual Harassment Requires Action

  1. Don't ignore the problem! MTSU policy supports your right to an environment free of hostility.
  2. Begin by saying "NO!" to the harasser. Direct, assertive action by you is the most effective way to deal with the problem.
  3. Write down exactly what happened to you, when it happened, where it happened and any possible witnesses to the incident.
  4. Report the problem immediately to:
