The statement responds to advice from the National People's Congress, which suggested establishing special committees in higher education institutions to curb sexual harassment.

Any form of indecency or sexual harassment is strictly prohibited according to two guidelines issued by the ministry last year to regulate the conduct of college teachers, said the statement.

The statement added that many universities and colleges had strengthened the work to cultivate teachers' ethics, with preventing and tackling sexual harassment as an important duty.
