- It occurs on-campus or on property owned or controlled by the College;
- It occurs in the context of a College educational or employment program or activity; or,
- It occurs outside the context of a College educational or employment program or activity but has continuing adverse effects on, or creates a hostile environment for, students, employees, or third parties within such context and/or while on-campus.
