This article examines the university sexual harassment policies which guides communication administrators in reacting to and managing both student and faculty sexual harassment-based allegations. The body of sexual harassment-based law, created and disseminated by persons who are not communication administrators or educators, focuses directly on specific human communication behaviors and assigns criteria for evaluating the relative lawfulness of the behaviors. The article intends to underscore the variety of heuristic possibilities offered by inquiry into communication-based laws, for both communication administrators and educators.
