Graduate Student Handbook: Harassment 13-14

Category: Harassment Policies School: Tufts University Statement Rating: Red

Relevant excerpt

When attitudes or opinions are expressed in words, e-mail, or behavior and constitute a threat, intimidation, verbal attack, or physical assault, it is harassment, which is prohibited at Tufts and may result in disciplinary consequences. Characterizing behavior as a prank or practical joke does not change its harassing nature if the subject of the joke is not a willing or active participant. Phone calls that individuals have stated are unwanted, misuse of message boards, e-mail messages, and other behaviors calculated to annoy, embarrass, or distress are harassing behavior and are prohibited.
