Office of Institutional Equity

Goal: Revise our harassment policies and procedures to incorporate the new Maryland law which essentially lowers the threshold for what constitutes illegal harassment under state law.

Future State

  • Effective October 1, 2022, Maryland law removes this requirement and litigants will need to show that, based on the totality of circumstances, the conduct unreasonably creates a working environment that a reasonable person would perceive to be “abusive and hostile”. 


  • This goal has to be completed by October 1, 2022.
