In February 2011, the UNC System changed the language of the Harassment Policy in all Codes of Student Responsibility in the entire UNC System. Below is the new wording for the policy, which includes gender identity.
HARASSING, THREATENING, INTIMIDATING BEHAVIOR
1. No student shall threaten, coerce, harass or intimidate another person or identifiable group of persons, in a manner that is unlawful or in violation of a constitutionally valid University policy, while on University premises or at University-sponsored activities based upon the person’s race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender-identity, creed, disability, or veteran status. (Emphasis added)
2. No student shall engage in unlawful harassment leading to a hostile environment (for full text please see the Code of Student Responsibility).
