We sincerely hope that no one experiences problems on co-op but if you do, please tell a professional; harassment may escalate when problems are not reported.
If you are enrolled in co-op, you should read this story that educates co-op students about harassment in the workplace.

If you experience problems on co-op, you are encouraged to approach your CECA student advisor, or to approach one of the two CECA advisors who specialize in reports of harassment.

In addition, the Office on Conflict Management and Human Rights has a very useful page on sexual harassment — what it is, and what to do if it happens to you, whether it happens while on study term or on co-op. It also lists a number of people who you can talk to, and their contact information.
