AAUP Articles on Targeted Harassment of Faculty

Given recent events on campus and the need to develop protocols dealing with Targeted Harassment, we offer links to a series of AAUP articles:

In addition, our AAUP colleague at Elon University, Megan Squire, professor of computer science and expert on rightwing harassment, especially in North Carolina, has shared the targeted harassment policy that the Elon AAUP chapter got passed and put into the faculty handbook.

Colleagues at Elon continue to refine the document and plan to move the “point person” out of Human Resources and into the Provost’s office.
