STOPIT! is a joint initiative of the Human Rights Office, Information Technology Services, the Department of Security, and the Dean of Student Affairs, aimed at addressing the issue of e-mail harassment.
Harassment is defined as “vexatious conduct or comment that is known or ought reasonably to be known as unwelcome.” The most commonly reported form of harassment takes the form of unwanted conduct or comment of a sexual nature and is known as sexual harassment. However, harassment may also be based on race, sexual and gender identity, ethnicity, ancestry, disability, etc.
Harassing comments constitute harassment regardless of how they are
communicated – whether in person, by telephone, by letter or e-mail.
To take action on harassing or discriminatory e-mail, do not erase the
e-mail message(s) from your inbox – it contains information that
may identify the person responsible – then forward the e-mail
in question to firstname.lastname@example.org.
