Questions About Sexual Harassment

I'm not sure I'm being harassed.  Can you help?

Definitely. SHAN gives you information you need to determine if what you experienced constitutes sexual harassment.

Does SHAN take formal steps to stop the harassment?

No. SHAN helps you consider the different options and strategies you have.

Does this mean I'm on my own?

Certainly not. SHAN assists you in many ways. We can help you keep records, file informal or formal complaints, and arrange meetings with personnel on campus. Please contact us.

What if I don't want to take any formal action?

In most cases, that's fine. One of SHAN's functions is to give you the opportunity to talk to us without fear or reprisal. There are also informal ways of addressing sexual harassment concerns. Call or email us to talk.
