Stalking is conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to feel fear and that significantly disrupts the person’s work, educational performance, on-campus living, or participation in a university activity on or off campus.
A pattern of conduct perceived as threatening or harassing may violate university policy under a reasonable-person standard even if the person who commits the conduct did not intend to make the party feel threatened or harassed. A behavior pattern that the target of the conduct finds distressful may be considered a violation even if the target did not specifically direct the person to cease contact.
