Sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature.
Engaging in verbal or physical behavior directed at an individual or a group based on origin, race, creed, gender, religious belief, or sexual orientation, according to a person of reasonable sensibilities, is likely to create an intimidating or demeaning environment that impedes the access of other students, faculty, and staff to the educational benefits available to them.
Discrimination as a form of disruptive conduct includes remarks made by a student that is derogatory, racist, discriminatory, patently offensive, profane and sexually explicit or communicated as graphic messages, either in words or pictures, and which demonstrate a bias or discrimination against any individual or group within the University.
The case of Sexual Harassment is dealt with as per the University Grants Commission (Prevention, prohibition, and redressal of sexual harassment of women employees and students in higher educational institutions) Regulations, 2015.
Public Display of Affection
Sri Sri University promotes healthy interaction between genders within its campus provided that the same is restricted to academic and professional spheres.
A public display of affection act that displays a person’s affection for another person of the opposite sex either verbally or physically in public places, is banned and construed as a punishable offense.
As per section – 294 of the Indian Penal Code, indulging in any obscene act in a public place is a criminal offense and is punishable with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to three months, or with fine, or with both.
One must maintain decency in behavior and discipline at all times and must refrain from indulging in boisterous activities.
