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:
    Equal Opportunity &  Affirmative Action Office
    Cope Administration Building, Room 220
    Phone: 615-898-2185

The Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Office has been trained to address sexual harassment complaints and will handle your complaint as confidentially as possible.

Claims of sexual harassment may also be filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) at 615-736-5828.

REMEMBER: Taking action will give you power over your own welfare and assure your legal right to learn and work in an environment free of sexual intimidation. It will also help make our University a more healthful and effective place to work and learn.
